Students in the B* Mitzvah class meet for Limmud b’Shabbat to study a core curriculum with a focus on the Shabbat morning t’fillah service and the weekly Torah parsha. In addition, students will celebrate the Jewish holidays and take part in school wide activities and programs.

- Starting in January, the entire cohort (along with parents) meets monthly for creative learning programs with clergy and educators.
- Private individualized training sessions with the B’nai Mitzvah Coordinator, clergy and cantorial staff.
- Preparation for service leadership, learning to leyn (chant) Torah and Haftarah, and writing and delivering a D’var Torah..
- One-on-one Hebrew literacy tutoring if needed.
- Tuition of $2,700, includes all of the above (Pride month discount $2,500)
