Dear Kehilla community,
We are very excited to announce that the 2018 Bar/Bat Mitzvah cohort’s ceremonies begin in April! You are invited to join us at the following shabbat morning services as these amazing 7th graders become Bar/Bat 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 Bar/Bat 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 Bar/Bat 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 fragrance free.
The following shabbat morning services will include the following young people becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
April 14- Devon Bowyer
April 21- Satya Zamudio
