B’nai Mitzvah


CJC launches a program for our children who are beginning to think about their bat/bar mitzvah, actively preparing, or are recently post bat/bar mitzvah. Our goal is to provide pathways to both engage and empower our children and youth in order for them to make informed choices about their spiritual journeys. Under the direction and guidance of Rabbi Jane Litman, our children and youth will share fun experiences that will also help them find meaning and inspiration, enabling them to strengthen their individual and collective Jewish identities. If you have questions about the program or wish to enroll your child, please email Jenny Walter.
