Didn’t have the opportunity for a Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah or B’nai Mitzvah when you were 12 or 13 years old? Join the inaugural B-Mitzvah* cohort at Columbia/Barnard Hillel!
Over the course of the academic year, you will meet monthly as a group with the entire B-Mitzvah cohort to learn the fundamental prayers and blessings for a B-Mitzvah and to explore your Torah portion. You will also meet monthly with Rabbi Leah one-on-one to supplement this material with your personal learning goals so you can come away from this experience feeling empowered as a Jewish adult as you take this important next step in your Jewish journey.
We will have a B-Mitzvah ceremony and celebration for all cohort members, their friends and families in April 2023 at the Kraft Center.
*B-Mitzvah is a gender neutral term for a Bar, Bat or B’nai Mitzvah
