Preparation for the B-Mitzvah traditionally begins in middle school so that the ceremony can happen between the ages of 12 and 13. At 92Y we’re here to help families (and prospective students) explore what feels right for them in expanding their Jewish identity. If you’re interested in speaking with someone about making this decision, please set up a time to speak with Rabbi Frank by emailing here.
*Bar/bat mitzvah means son/daughter of the commandments, respectively. Other gender-inclusive terms for this ceremony include B-Mitzvah, Brit Mitzvah, or Simchat Mitzvah. We are committed to providing a meaningful coming of age ceremony for students of all gender identities.
