Mazel tov as you prepare your child to enter into one of the most exciting stops along the journey of our Jewish lives. BHC's Bar/Bat Mitzvah program ensures that your child is properly trained to lead the congregation in prayer and is ready to take on the responsibilities of being a member of the adult Jewish community. Through the Bar/Bat Mitzvah program, families and students are connected to each other, to our clergy and educators, to BHC and to Judaism. At BHC, we are committed to making this a wonderful, positive experience for your family. Some steps along the way:
