Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Planning for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah

If you wish your child to celebrate their Bar or Bat Mitzvah at EHRS please book an interview with Rabbi Mark approximately 2 years before their 13th birthday. Each child starts to prepare for their Bar or Bar Mitzvah 4 terms (approx 15 months) before their celebration date.  Each child is assigned a 1:1 tutor who will meet them weekly to teach them to read and leyn their Torah portion, Haftarah, and/or Shacharit service.

But Bnei Mitzvah at EHRS has more significance than only learning to leyn (chant) a Torah portion. That is why we are very excited about our programme which is on Fridays after school.

We have a three term curriculum of ten weeks, each term is based on this principle from Mishnah Avot –
“The world stands on three things, on Torah, Avodah and Gemilut Chasadim.”

After your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah we encourage them to become mentors to upcoming BBM students.
