B’nai Mitzvah

We are proud at Temple Israel of Natick to have some of the best-trained bar and bat mitzvah students around!  Highlights of our bar and bat mitzvah program include:

  • An inclusive approach that involves all families, including interfaith and LGBTQ
  • Learning to read Torah in the 6th grade “trope class”
  • Reading Torah at the family services and on Shavuot
  • Studying Torah and Haftarah with Cantor Ken
  • Learning about the Torah and Haftarah portions with Rabbi Liben
  • Helping to make up the minyan on Monday & Thursday mornings
  • Working on the 13 Mitzvot projects, through which students pick mitzvot involving interpersonal kindness, ritual acts, and Torah study to help make their bar or bat mitzvah preparation more meaningful.
  • A Bar/Bat Mitzvah Committee that helps guide families through the process
