Adult B’nei Mitzvah Program

Starts Tuesday January 11, 2022 – Come take a deep dive into Jewish literacy and practice.  This program will combine classroom learning and discussion with workshops on central Jewish topics culminating in a personal ceremony and celebration.

The Goal of the program is for students to experience:

  •  Making meaning from Jewish sacred text
  • Gaining a sense of the scope of Jewish History
  • Understanding the spiritual meaning within Jewish lifecycle rituals
  • Unpacking the deeper meanings found within the Jewish calendar cycle
  • Surveying Jewish ethics and values
  • Finding meaning and beauty within Jewish liturgy and developing a personal practice
  • Exploring topics and issues within Jewish theology and philosophy

The course will run for 20 sessions, roughly twice a month on Tuesday evenings beginning on 11 January.  Beyond class attendance, participants will be expected to attend Shabbat services at least once a month, and there will be occasional projects and journaling.

The course will meet in-person when possible, but Zoom will remain an option for those who prefer this.

If you never had the opportunity to have a B’nei Mitzvah experience or if you want to have this experience in a more personalized and deep way from an adult perspective, this course is for you!  

This course is available only to Emanu-El members and is free of charge.
