B'nai Mitzvah Headquarters
The B’nai Mitzvah celebration is a joyous religious event for our Beth Or families. It is not only a coming of age, but also celebrates the assuming of adult Jewish responsibility. We very much look forward to sharing in this simcha with you.
We continuously strive to ensure that this sacred journey is full of learning and meaning for our B’nai Mitzvah students. We also want the B’nai Mitzvah experience to be stress-free for our B’nai Mitzvah families and to follow a process that is as simple as possible.
