Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Springboard (Makpetzah) into Jewish adulthood prepares boys and girls to become B'nei Mitzvah, around their 13th birthday or some time afterwards, depending on their readiness and confidence with Hebrew reading in preparation for leading the service and reading their Torah portion.

Over 2 years from 11 -13 children study Hebrew, build familiarity with the Shabbat morning service and prepare to read from the Torah, working both in small classes and also with a personal tutor. The course is further enhanced by our Jewish Studies curriculum held bi-weekly on Shabbat during term-time.

The Makpetzah programme gets off to a great start at the beginning of the academic year with a residential weekend away run by Sinai's Youth Worker. A great way to get to know other students, and to form lasting friendships!

Young people will be supported to fulfil the mitzvah of Bar/Bat Mitzvah and acknowledge their transition into Jewish adulthood in a way which is most appropriate to them; so, for example, students with additional learning needs or those lacking in confidence will be supported by appropriate tutors and rabbinic input to design a ceremony which is meaningful and appropriate for the family.
