Adult B'nai Mitzvah

CBST's Adult B'nai Mitzvah program is a remarkable journey of learning, praying, studying and exploring Jewish identity and tradition.  For some, this is a process toward a first b’nai mitzvah, and for some, it is a different kind of experience than the one you had when you were young.  Whatever the motivation for embarking on this path, welcome.

The program is a three year, six semester experience which culminates in a celebration of becoming b’nai mitzvah in the spring of the third year. Various teachers will lead this program, and class topics include liturgy, Jewish history, Torah, theology, Hebrew, and Torah Cantillation.

The Adult Bnai Mitzvah cohort of 2020 will begin in November 2017 with CBST's Lehrhaus classes. Info and registration are here.

We are looking forward to this time of learning, questioning and exploring together!
