Congregation Rodfei Zedek is committed to supporting and celebrating our students and their families upon reaching this joyous milestone. We find historic and modern meaning in studying the Torah portion, and we seek to heighten awareness of what it means to take our place as full members of the Jewish community, in the world, and in Hyde Park. We collaborate with our families to craft a meaningful Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience including planning for a service where the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is called for an aliyah to the Torah for the first time.
Rabbi Minkus and Cantor Rosenberg will meet with our group of 6th- to 8th-graders once a month on shabbat for lively discussion and learning, continuing at Kiddush lunch (dates).
A gathering for families beginning the Bar/Bat Mitzvah process will be held in November to exchange ideas on makinig the experience unique, meaningful, and memorable. For more information, contact Rabbi Minkus or Cantor Rosenberg.
