Bar Mitzva Discovery Course
For 6th & 7th Grade Boys

Do you want your child to CELEBRATE his Bar Mitzva?

The BMD Course, in a relaxed and fun setting, presents Bar Mitzva from historical, traditional, and contemporary perspectives. The Jewish customs that relate to this momentous occasion take on a beautiful meaning, and the students will learn life-lessons and values that are core to Jewish teachings. Students will learn how to put on Tfillin and a Talit, and learn about the beautiful significance of Jewish Life.

The course covers all 'global' aspects of the Bar Mitzva. Training for the actual Bar Mitzva Torah readings is available through Chabad for additional cost. Contact the office for more information. This course is designed to benefit students regardless of where they will celebrate their Bar Mitzva.

Here's what people are saying about the Bar Mitzva Discovery Course: 

 

Our son graduated from the Bar Mitzva Discovery Course earlier this year (2019), he later continued to prepare for his Bar-Mitzvah with Rabbi Hecht in 1:1 lessons. His experience of learning about values, Jewish history, and reasons for many Jewish traditions was impactful and profound. He also enjoyed the company of other boys his age, and Rabbi Hecht's positive and invigorating teaching style was a topic of discussion at our house after every session, as our son brought stories to share with us all. We can't thank Rabbi Hecht and his wife enough for guiding our son and his friends through this meaningful time in their lives in such positive, friendly, and profound way. It was truly a life-long experience that our son will always carry with him. -- Dana & Gadi Hutt, Sunnyvale 

 

Chabad's Bar/Bat mitzvah Discovery course is fantastic. Rabbi Hecht and Miriam provided a wonderful, engaging learning experience where our children felt comfortable to ask questions, and to share their thoughts. -- The Berman Family, Sunnyvale
