    Is a B Mitzvah Right for Your Family? B Mitzvah FAQ Session for Parents

    Thursday, Aug 29th 7:30p to 8:30p
    Are you debating how (or whether) to seek a Bar or Bat Mitzvah for your child? Are you feeling pressure because “how it’s supposed to be” and “how it’s always been done” isn’t a good fit for your family? Are you concerned that non-Jewish family members might not be allowed to participate fully? Are you looking for a custom celebration that will be both personal and meaningful, balancing Jewish traditions and your unique family heritage? Follow this link for an event flyer.
