B’nai Mitzvah program


At Or Shalom, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience challenges students to think for themselves, to encounter Judaism more deeply in relationship with a mentor, and to put Jewish values into action through community service and participation in Jewish practice. It's a time for parents to see their kids in a new light, for youth to take more responsibility, for the whole family to connect to their community as they embark on the adventures of the teen years ahead.


Bnai Mitzvah Tutoring. Approximately one year before their 13th birthday, Or Shalom students begin to meet one-on-one weekly with tutors to learn to lead prayers and chant their Torah portions, and to write their drash -- their teaching to the community -- on the parshah, the weekly Torah reading.
