Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Website Under Construction.  Watch this space.


Every aspect of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah service is directly handled by Rabbi Cashman: setting the date, choosing the portion, checking on the learning on a weekly basis, writing the D’var Torah, rehearsing the service including reading from the scroll.

 Consult our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Manual for complete information about setting a date, prerequisites, requirements, expectations, and possibilities.
