Neshamah’s unique B’nai Mitzvah Program offers the highest level of ritual training paired with the personal touch of teachers who know (and enjoy!) each student.
Classes focus on Torah portions, Prayer services and the spiritual meaning behind both. In class, students study with teachers in small groups and then join the larger group to sing together and practice chanting in front of others.
Customized online videos and computer-based learning tools are available for all enrolled students to access at home. All classes are team-taught by Rabbi Rader and the Neshamah faculty.
During the B’nai Mitzvah process, Rabbi Rader meets with each family individually several times to plan the service details. B’nai Mitzvah services can take place at a local venue of the family’s choice or one of several synagogues in Boca Raton/Delray Beach.
Classes take place at Temple Beth Shalom in Boca Raton.
