Following the Bar/Bat Mitvah

It is Narayever tradition to reserve an aliya for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah on the Shabbat following their simcha. Families are encouraged to attend shul, to enable their son/daughter, to participate in this honour, and to let the service coordinator know in advance that you will be coming so an Aliya can be reserved.

The Bar or Bat Mitzvah marks the culmination of a time of very intense engagement with the shul and with Jewish tradition. However, it is the fervent hope of our congregation that the Bar/Bat Mitzvah will also mark the beginning of a long life of engagement with Torah and with the community. The shul offers programs for teens, and young people are strongly encouraged to take part and build on the positive experience of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah to continue in their Jewish learning and growth. Speak to the rabbi for more information.

Although every appropriate consideration will be given to families, failure to comply with the policies outlined above may result in cancellation of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, at the discretion of the Board of Governors, after issuing notice.
