If Your Child Has a Summer Bar/Bat Mitzvah

The synagogue expects that if your child has a late summer Bar/Bat Mitzvah all preparations will be completed before the summer.  The rabbis’ and tutors’ long experience is that there will be almost no time to prepare during summer months.

We believe that it is important for our children to attend Jewish summer camps.  In order to be sure your child is able to both attend camp and be ready for their simcha, it is our goal for them to have accomplished the vast majority of what they need to know BEFORE leaving for camp.   Several of our area camps will arrange for tutoring during the summer.  This tutoring should only be counted on for purposes of maintaining learned skills.

If you are planning to be gone for any length of time during the summer please speak to Rabbi Allen or Rabbi Kippley-Ogman about your plans.  The synagogue needs to be in touch with you for the month immediately prior to the event.
