B’nai Mitzvah

Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies are remarkable, life-affirming events.  They provide a wonderful opportunity to welcome a new Jewish adult into the community, to affirm a family’s commitment to ongoing Jewish living and study, and to gather relatives and friends from everywhere for the simcha (celebration).

B’nai Mitzvah at The Santa Monica Synagogue are quite exceptional. Our children lead the entire service-start to finish!  They lead prayers in Hebrew and English, chant from theTorah and the Haftarah, and deliver a D’var Torah– Words of Torah.  We are most proud of all that we can offer, and of  all that our students accomplish.

This website serves as an on-line resource for our students and is available to all who seek to learn. Enjoy!
