Rabbi Koppell provides tutoring in Torah and Haftara cantillation, assistance with preparation of a dvar Torah speech, and will create a service to inspire the guests.

A young person’s study and practice of our Jewish traditions, the Hebrew language, and the basic prayers of Judaism prepare him or her for becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah that culminate in a meaningful ceremony. Our B’nai mitzvah program prepares our youth for a wonderful experience leading the Torah service and inspiring the congregation with their words and wisdom.

The Bar or Bat Mitzvah is the beginning of a young person’s journey as a responsible adult. It is the beginning of a lifetime studying Torah, the texts, stories that have sustained the Jewish people, and a commitment to the preserve our culture and traditions. It also marks a young person’s commitment to make a difference in the world by pursuing justice and Shalom, peace, for all.
