B'nei Mitzvah


Mazel Tov on your child's upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah! We know this can be an overwhelming time for parents and children, but we are here to make it a stress free (as much as possible!) and joyous occasion. Here are some of the information and links you will need during the process.


Bar/Bat Mitzvah Guide

It's never too early to begin to prepare for the big day! In fact, the journey begins in third grade (or before). We have created a Bar/Bat Mitzvah Guide to answer most of your questions about B'nei Mitzvah at Park Synagogue. If you have any questions, reach out to us at any time.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club

A Park tradition! Held during the second semester of Sunday School, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club is an important intergenerational class that prepares the family for the upcoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah. The program incorporates all Park sixth graders (Day School and Religious School students) and their parents, studying with Rabbi Skoff and the entire clergy. For more information, please contact the school office.



Here are a variety of prayers for download. If you have any questions, please contact Gadi Galili's office.
