B’nei Mitzvah on the Horizon! April

Dear Kehilla community,

You are invited to join us as at the following Shabbat morning services as some incredible humans become B’nei Mitzvah! Some of us may feel a little hesitant about coming to a Shabbat service when a young person we do not know personally is becoming B’nei Mitzvah. Please be assured that having Kehilla community members present brings immense joy and liveliness to the service, which is greatly appreciated by the family and their young person. Furthermore, from the pride that the B’nei Mitzvah families show while joining in the Kehilla community aliya to the Torah to the joyful way that the students dance with that day’s celebrant after they have finished chanting from the Torah, the power of these services reaches all who attend. Please note that these services begin at 10am and please attend these (and all) services scent free.

The following Shabbat morning services will include the following young people becoming B’nei Mitzvah:

April 6 – Leo Silverberg 

What has been your favorite part of this BBM process so far?

My favorite part of the bar mitzvah process has been studying with my good friend Myles & our teacher Natalie. She makes it really fun and I’ve learned a lot. Also, we have excellent snacks.

What do you like best about Kehilla and/or Judaism?

My favorite thing about Kehilla is what a welcoming place it is. I like that all my family is welcome at the Shabbat services whether they are Jewish or not.

What is something fun or unexpected that people may not know about you?

When not studying for my bar mitzvah, I can be found playing on my school’s basketball team or playing 2K.
