Petaluma's Inclusive Center for Jewish Life

B'nai Mitzvah

Bar and Bat Mitzvah is a wonderful rite of passage as our Jewish youngsters make their way into young adults. The process of becoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a deep, enriching experience of learning about Judaism, Torah, discipline, responsibility and community.

Held on or around a child's 13th birthday, a B'nai Mitzvah ceremony will include Torah readings, singing Shabbat prayers and offering a teaching (Drash) from the Torah portion of the week. 

Many of our b'nai mitzvah students are part of our J School, but it is not a requirement.

We also offer adult b'nai mitzvah to those who are interested.

Please contact Rabbi Ted Feldman with any questions about b'nai mitzvah.
