Adult B’nei Mitzvah Program


Temple Emanu-El’s Adult B’nei Mitzvah Program is for those who celebrated becoming b’nei mitzvah as youth but who wish to reaffirm their place in Jewish tradition as adults, as well as for those who never had the opportunity to do so.





































The class includes attendance at the Skirball Center’s Hebrew Marathon (approximately four hours long) and one evening study session per week. Each week’s session includes both a Hebrew and a Judaica component. The Judaica section includes a Skirball class in the fall; the rest of the year, this class is taught by Temple Emanu-El clergy and teachers. An hour of Hebrew takes place each week, immediately before the Judaica class.

The year culminates in a ceremony in the spring, at which each student has the opportunity to read from the Torah in Hebrew. The date of that ceremony will be decided in conjunction with the students of the class.

Please note, we will not have an Adult B’nei Mitzvah class during the 2013-2014 program year. For information about our next class, please email Rabbi Benjamin Zeidman.
