Adult B'nei Mitzvah

CBI's Adult B’nei Mitzvah course is taught by Rabbi Kelly Levy on Sundays at 1:45pm, IN-PERSON only. The curriculum will take students through a deep and reflective Jewish journey in which we will explore Jewish texts, liturgy, history and discover the meaning and importance of Judaism in our own lives.  This class is a great way to build community, and celebrate your Judaism – whether you never had the opportunity to have a B'nei Mitzvah, or you want to do it again from an adult perspective.  This is an 18 month program and will culminate in a Shabbat service led by all participants in January 2024.  

The Adult B’nei Mitzvah Program is open to members of Congregation Beth Israel who were born Jewish or have finalized their conversion to Judaism.  There will be short weekly assignments which will include the writing of personal reflections, as well as preparatory reading.  Members of the class are required to attend Shabbat morning services monthly.  Members must be able to read Hebrew, and will be assessed by Cantorial Soloist Sarah Avner in September.

Prerequisites:

  • Must have taken a beginning Hebrew class
  • Must be able to attend 80% of the classes
  • Must be a member of CBI

Cost: $360 registration fee, includes a prayer book, and related materials 

Registration is closed!
 

We aim to be inclusive of anyone regardless of financial means.  If the fee presents a financial hardship, please be in touch with Pam Hanna, Membership Director, to discuss payment options.  

Please be in touch with Trish Ivey, Assistant to the Clergy, with any additional questions.
