B'nei Mitzvah

B’nei (Bar and Bat) Mitzvah preparation at Eitz Chayim is a rigorous, highly individualized process through which each student is challenged and supported in her/his quest for knowledge and meaning.

A bond is formed between the students – and parents – in each class as they support each other through the process and celebrate together at each service. The students attain a sense of true accomplishment as well as a heightened awareness of themselves and their place in the Jewish world.

Class Schedule

Beginning in 4th grade, Eitz Chayim’s B’nei Mitzvah class meets on Sunday from 10am–1pm and Wednesday from 6:30-7:30pm. In addition, once the student is about a year out from his/her Bar/Bat Mitzvah date, they will meet with a private tutor on a weekly basis for individual study and preparation.
