Bar / Bat Mitzvah
Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Bnei Torah are traditionally celebrated within the context of the Shabbat service. For adults who did not celebrate Bar/Bat Mitzvah, a programme leading to an Ish/Eshet Mitzvah celebration has been specially developed.
SWESRS prides itself on its vibrant, fun and educational, inclusive B’nei Mitzvah Programme.
This takes place on three Shabbat mornings a month and once a month on Erev Shabbat.
The students begin the programme when they enter school year 7, and stay with us until they celebrate their Bar/Bat mitzvah.
To fully participate in the scheme the students need to be able to read Hebrew and to ensure that they can, all students are invited for assessment when they enter school year 6. If it is felt they need some extra help, they are then invited to join our Hebrew Club on a weekday evening so that they are ready to begin the B’nei mitzvah programme the following September.
SWESRS also provides 1:1 tuition to students for a year prior to their Bar/Bat mitzvah, at no extra cost.
