Grade 7: B'Mitzvotav: Preparing for Jewish Adulthood
Tuesdays 5:45 -7:45 PM and Thursdays 3:30 - 5:30 PM
7th Graders are preparing and becoming adult members of the community as they prepare and become Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Their Religious School program is held on Tuesday evenings from 5:45 – 7:45 pm and the goals include community building, making Reform Jewish choices, Comparative Judaism, electives and preparing for Jewish adulthood. The evening includes dinner with the Grade 8-10 community. Thursday afternoons are used for Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation during which learners take Doin’ Drash with Rabbi Sirkman to work on the process of learning and teaching Torah (with the aim of giving a Drash at one’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah) and continue to take Hebrew. Thursday is designed so that one takes Doin Drash for only one semester (Fall or Spring depending upon one’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah date).
