Adult B’nai Mitzvah

Adult B’nai Mitzvah is a modern ritual for those who did not become Bar/Bat Mitzvah at age 13. At Temple Adat Elohim, the Adult B’nai Mitzvah program is an 18 month group study experience that focuses on Hebrew, liturgy, and basic Jewish knowledge. Classes are taught by TAE’s Clergy, Staff, and special guests. The program culminates with a Shabbat service that includes Torah readings and student speeches. For more information about the Adult B’nai Mitzvah program click here. Questions? Please contact Rabbi Diamond.

Various Dates Throughout the Year

Our Rosh Chodesh program gives women (13 and older) the opportunity to welcome the new moon and the new month; learn the background behind some of the most famous women in Jewish history through stories, songs, and articles; make new friends; and discuss topics relevant to women – all in the comfort and warmth of a home. Refreshments served. Bring yourself — maybe a friend, mother or daughter– and an open mind. Sponsored by TAE Sisterhood.
