Becoming a B'nai Mitvah


Rabbi Matt Zerwekh, B’nai Mitzvah Coordinator Marlene Denenfeld, and the staff of Temple B’nai Israel’s Religious School prepare our children for their bar or bat mitzvah.

Parents play a crucial role in this life-changing journey by assisting their children with additional studying and with the completion of their community service projects.

Bar/bat mitzvah is a milestone in the religious life of students. This program is available to all students in good standing who have been enrolled in formal Jewish education for the two-year period immediately prior to their 13th birthday.
