Sixth Grade Shabbaton
A Shabbat of Learning for Sixth Graders and their Parents
Join Rabbis Sirkman and Miller, Cantor Scher, Rabbi Rudin, Phil and Adam to consider:
- Why become a bar/bat mitzvah?
- How does this happen?
- What do I "become" when I've become a bar/bat mitzvah?
- How does my bar/bat mitzvah connect me to the Jewish community?
- How does my bar/bat mitzvah help me create a stronger COVENANT with the Jewish people?
- How do I handle the intensity of this process!?
