B'nai Mitzvah Program

One of the most joyous and meaningful moments in the life of a Jewish family is the celebration of a child becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Congregation Dor Tamid B’nai Mitzvah students lead the entire congregation in the Shabbat morning prayers, chant from the Torah scroll, chant from Haftara (the Book of Prophets), and deliver a personal D'var Torah on the relevance of an aspect of the weekly Torah portion.

The very best way to learn about Bar or Bat Mitzvah at CDT - and to decide whether this is the best community in which to celebrate your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah - is to attend Shabbat morning services at CDT when one of our students is called to the Torah as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. 

B’nai Mitzvah are celebrated in a service that is open to all members of the congregation, guests, Jews and non-Jews, and anyone who walks through the doors. CDT B’nai Mitzvah students attend Religious School, meet regularly with the Rabbi, meet weekly for 6 - 9 months preceding the Bar or Bat Mitzvah service with the Cantorial Soloist and an accomplished tutor, and understand that Religious School attendance post-B'nai Mitzvah through 10th grade is the norm at CDT.

If you have any questions about our B’nai Mitzvah process, please contact Ruthanne Warnick at 770-623-8860 or rwarnick@dortamid.com and make an appointment with the Rabbi or Cantorial Soloist.
