Adult B’Mitzvah Program

Year-Long Course Begins Tuesday, October 22, Meeting Weekly Tuesday Evenings

7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Second Floor Reference Library

If you have not yet had the honor to read from a Torah scroll, help lead a Shabbat service, or learn and teach Torah, participate in our new Adult B’ Mitzvah program! 

Every week on Tuesday evenings, together, we will:

  • Explore Jewish thought, practice and ritual. 

  • Read and dig into the prayers and blessings of a worship service.

  • Learn how to chant Torah.

  • Develop the practice of d’var Torah writing. 

Prerequisites and Cost:

  • The ability to decode Hebrew words is a requirement for this class. To learn the Alef-Bet, or to brush up on it, please consider our upcoming 5-evening course, Alef-Bet Boot Camp, beginning September 8. Visit www.rodefshalom.org/rsvp to join.

  • Total cost for Adult B Mitzvah course is $150 for materials.

Our final project will be leading the entire service for Erev Simchat Torah in October 2020. Our goal, in addition to all of the transformational learning, will be the creation of a warm and inclusive community. Questions? Email Rabbi Sharyn Henry, henry@rodefshalom.org.
