What does it involve?

For a period of six months, participants in the Bar/Bat Mitzva Program learn about & develop their own spirituality & identity. They become acquainted with the prayer service, prepare to be called up to the Torah & learn how to read their Haftorah.

 

The group meets twice a week: each pupil meets individually with the rabbi (each meeting is personally arranged) in which he learns the cantillation (prayer tunes) & his Haftorah. In the second meeting, the whole group, or the group & their families, meets with the Rabbi an hour before prayers on Friday evening for a talk or workshop dealing with subjects connected to tradition & belief in the light of present reality.

 

The program also encourages active participation of the

youngsters & their families in the life of the congregation including a number of Shabbat evening & morning services,

social & educational meetings, participation in the Masorti youth movement NOAM & more. 

 

Within the framework of the program, participants & their

families take part in a group trip to Jerusalem where they  learn about the city & perform the mitzvah of laying tefillin

at the "Ezrat Israel" egalitarian section of the Kotel.

 

 

The Masorti Movement is committed to a pluralistic, egalitarian, and democratic vision of Zionism. Masorti represents a “third” way. Not secular Judaism. Not ultra-Orthodoxy. But a Jewish life that integrates secular beliefs. Halakhah with inclusion and egalitarianism. Tradition that recognizes the realities of today’s world. Masorti engages tens of thousands of Israelis each year, young and old, native born as well as olim from around the globe.
