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. The program culminates with a Shabbat service that includes Torah readings and student speeches.
Participants enroll in this program for many different reasons. Some of these adults did not have a strong childhood Jewish education, some were in communities where women could not read from the Torah, some were not Jewish when they were 13, and some study as a way of modeling intentional Jewish living for their family and friends.
Classes are taught by TAE’s Clergy, Staff, and special guests. Please contact Marcy Goldberg for more information about the Adult B’nai Mitzvah class.
