Crossing the Threshold: B'nai Mitzvah Orientation- Part One
5th/6th Graders must attend with their parents! Parents, grandparents, tutors and clergy all play a significant role in guiding students on the path to a meaningful b'nai mitzvah experience.
Learning Torah and Haftarah involves months of preparation and anticipation leading up to this milestone of entering adulthood. But, despite all the planning, becoming a B'nai Mitzvah can be a bit overwhelming and stressful for students--and their families. But it doesn't have to be! So, we've called in a B'nai Mitzvah expert, Reb Goldie, to help ensure this experience is both meaningful and joyous.
Parents: attend this workshop and support your 5th/6th grader on the journey to creating a purposeful Jewish life and identity going forward. During the 90 minute session, Reb Goldie will guide students and parents through five creative Bar/Bat Mitzvah Action Plan (BMAP) activities that take into account each participant's talents, interests and skills, while strengthening family dynamics.
Rabbi Milgram brings over a decade of experience researching and developing innovative methods, programs and resources for a more meaningful B'nai Mitzvah experience. She has been honored by the National Jewish Book Awards for her anthology, Mitzvah Stories.
This program is part of our Scholar-in-Residence weekend and designed for JRC and Beth Emet families only.
