Bar & Bat Mitzvah

A Very Special Experience

At the JCCP/CBT, we understand that having a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is a very special experience for an individual and their family. This event often brings together a large group of extended family, friends, and members of the community to rejoice in this joyous Simcha. The celebration of a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is a distinctive tradition, and is one of the unique experiences that help define our Jewish identity.

Well-Prepared Students

Our in-house professional staff, at the JCCP/CBT , fully prepares each student for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. An individualized program is created to train each of our students. Our Cantor carefully guides each student to achieve the proficiency and confidence needed to comfortably lead and participate in their Bar or Bat Mitzvah religious service.

Choices of Religious Services

At the JCCP/CBT, we allow the family of the Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah to choose the religious service that best suits their family’s traditions. We offer both Egalitarian services and Traditional services. Bar and Bat Mitzvah services can include  Friday night Shabbat services, Saturday morning Shabbat services, or Saturday evening services, as well as other appropriate days and dates during the year.

Getting the Entire Family Involved

When possible, at the JCCP/CBT, we offer honors to members of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah family during the religious service. We find this custom further enhances the joyous atmosphere of this important Simcha.

Large Accommodating Facility

Our large Sanctuary, Social Hall, kitchen facilities, and on-site parking can accommodate larger Bar and Bat Mitzvah services and celebrations with ease.
