Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program

Congregation Rodfei Zedek is committed to supporting and celebrating our students and their families upon reaching this joyous milestone.  We find both historic and modern meaning in studying the Torah portion, and seek to heighten awareness of what it means to take our place as full members of the Jewish Community in Hyde Park and in the world at large.  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.

Join Rabbi Minkus and Cantor Rosenberg for a series of events with the cohort of 6th-8th graders on selected Shabbat and Sunday dates for lively discussions and learning.  A gathering for families beginning the Bar/Bat Mitzvah process will be held after the High Holidays to exchange ideas on making the experience unique, meaningful, and memorable.  For more information or to select a bar/bat mitzvah date for your child, contact Rabbi Minkus or Cantor Rosenberg.
