Adult B'nai Mitzvah Class Date: January 18, 2017 Time: 6:00 pm

ADULT BAR/BAT MITZVAH & BEGINNERS’ HEBREW*

Taught by Rabbi TelRav, Cantor Morgovsky

Wed. evenings, Oct. 26, 2016 – May 24, 2017 from 6:00pm – 7:15pm

Have you been waiting for the right time to celebrate your adult Jewish right to lead services? That is, after all, the point of preparing for a bar/bat mitzvah. If you’re ready to try, then we’re ready for you. The preparation will happen in a one-year weekly class. Hebrew class will be offered separately right after each session and is optional. That is right, Hebrew is absolutely not a requirement to lead a service. One half of the year will be taught by Rabbi TelRav and will focus on Jewish history, holidays, prophets, and text. The second half of the year will be taught by Cantor Morgovsky and will focus on liturgy and B’nai Mitzvah preparation which includes service leading and sermon writing. The class will culminate in a group adult B’nai Mitzvah on June 24, 2017. This class will follow the religious school calendar and will meet the weeks that school is in session beginning on October 26, 2016 and ending on May 24, 2017.

FEE: $180.00
