Adult Education

Every other year, a self-selecting group of adults commit to a journey of study with the Rabbi towards a ceremony of adult B’nai Mitzvah. The year is spent mastering the Shabbat morning prayers and service, learning Torah, and studying a subject of choice in depth. Together, the students lead a Shabbat morning service, complete with Torah and haftarah readings, during the holy day of Shavuot in the spring to celebrate the culmination of their journey towards B’nai Mitzvah together.

If you are interested in becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, please contact Rabbi Laurie at

Studying once a week with a qualified instructor, students learn the necessary skills of decoding the Hebrew alphabet, comprehension of basic vocabulary, verb conjugation and usages, and writing in Hebrew.

All are welcome to read the books and join the conversation with other avid readers eager to share their thoughts, ideas, and reflections about the topics the authors explore.
