    Your 12th birthday is a perfect time to start preparing to become Bar Mitzvah. To learn of both the tremendous privilege and responsibilities of becoming Bar Mitzvah. Specifically, it is a good time to learn about our holidays and heroes, to discuss what it means to be a Jew, and what steps you could take, to dedicate yourself to the ideals and beliefs of our people. Please reach one of our JRCC rabbis for more information.
