Who says there aren’t second chances in life? If you are Jewish and for whatever reason you missed the opportunity to have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah as a thirteen year old, it is not too late to be called to the Torah as an adult!

While it is true that Jewish tradition teaches that whether or not you had an actual Bar (or Bat) Mitzvah ceremony one automatically (at age 13) becomes a Bar or Bat Mitzvah (a son/daughter of the commandments), it is also true that if you missed out on having a ceremony, well, you missed out! And, for those at Beth Tikvah Congregation who became “Bar/Bat Mitzvah” as adults, the experience for them is extremely meaningful.

So, if you are up for a new adventure in your life…if you would like to expand and fortify your knowledge of Judaism and would like to add a bit more joy, learning, spirituality, and connectedness to others…this opportunity may be for you!

Now, you may be wondering how much study, practice and class time will be involved and you may be asking yourself how you can become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah when you are unable at this time to read Hebrew. These are important questions and ones that we will need to discuss together once we determine who and how many people would like to give such a program a try.

If you are interested in learning about becoming an Adult Bar or Bat Mitzvah, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or call 847-885-4545, so that we can have one of our clergy connect with you.
