YAHALOM marks this important milestone in every Jewish child’s life with a rich and tailored schedule that accompanies their entire Bar/Bat Mitzvah year.

A group of Bar/Bat Mitzvah students meet over a series of ten annual meetings to study, discuss and experience together the different implications of this important transition.

Interpretations of Jewish identity, among other issues are explored on a personal, family, community and national level.

The entire program is designed to reinforce the joyous and happy nature of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations, with topics and materials carefully selected to reflect the children’s choices and interests.
