Student Preparation

If you would like to further upgrade your event, we are happy to provide suggestions. It is our goal to provide your child with a comprehensive understanding of what it means to become a bar mitzvah. This may include, but is not limited to, learning his parsha (Torah portion), learning to read and/or chant his portion from the Torah, being able to explain the meaning of his Torah portion in English, learning prayers to lead in service and learning to apply the lessons of his portion to his own life. The bar mitzvah preparation will include any Hebrew reading lessons necessary by Penina Rossman, our JFX Hebrew reading specialist, as well as guidance from both Rabbi Koval and Rabbi Josh Grodko.
