Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon and Staff
A two-year program that prepares participants for a group Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah service, this is a wonderful opportunity to deepen Jewish knowledge and commitment. The required courses in the first year include completion of a Hebrew Marathon and a follow-up Beginning Hebrew class, as well as completion of the Basic Judaism course. The second year course is direct participation for a group Bar/Bat Mitzvah service.
The second-year course in the Temple Emanu-El Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program, this eight-month long course leads to a group Bar/Bat Mitzvah service. Students gain familiarity and comfort leading the liturgy for both Friday night and Saturday morning services, as well as the ability to chant from the Torah and Haftarah. In addition, a fundamental understanding of Jewish prayer and study concepts and techniques will be taught. This class culminates with a group Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony, with class members leading the service and chanting from the Torah and Haftarah. For more information, call Rabbi Cohon at (520) 327-4501.
