B'Nai Mitzvah

Shalom!

I am delighted to welcome you to the Congregation of Reform Judaism's B’nai Mitzvah Resource Page. I use the word "B'nai" when referring to more than one "Bar" or "Bat" Mitzvah Candidate. "B'nai Mitzvah" will be the phrase I employ throughout this page.

As I acclimate to becoming your new Cantor, I will be editing and making changes specifically to the B'nai Mitzvah page and resources; hence, I want to thank you in advance for bearing with me through this process. Please reach out to me if there are any technical issues or typos you encounter. Please also feel free to share any suggestions to make the information and materials more accessible, as my goal is to guide you through your B'nai Mitzvah preparation journey as smoothly as possible.

If you have any questions, want to speak about your special day, or simply would like to connect, please feel free to email me. I look forward to meeting you soon!

~Cantor Bryce Megdal~

Goals and objectives
  • To provide a meaningful Jewish experience for the B'nai Mitzvah candidate and his/her family.
  • To enable the B'nai Mitzvah candidate to achieve a basic working knowledge of Jewish prayer and Torah reading. Fun fact: The Hebrew word for prayer is T'filah, which is part of the title of the prayer book we use!
  • To build a life-long relationship with every individual through care and compassion, and to aid in self discovery and expression.
  • To be a guiding light during the B'nai Mitzvah candidate's transition from childhood to adulthood by creating a safe and supportive environment that encourages continued participation at CRJ and in Jewish life after the ceremony.
