At Kol HaLev we believe the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a commitment made by the child to embrace their Jewish identity and participate as an adult member of the Jewish community. The event sets the tone for a lifetime of passionate and meaningful Judaic involvement.
We work with parents and children to develop a course of preparation to make this a meaningful celebration. For some children, for their Bar/Bat mitzvah they learn the traditional prayers and Torah reading, with the help of our expert tutors. Alternatively, some children’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience may focus on a significant project of Jewish learning or of social action, culminating with a presentation to the community. We will work with you to develop a meaningful Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience for your child and your family.
Besides this course of study, we help you and your child prepare for this celebration through Shabbat Dinners, Shabbat Services, and family Holiday celebrations, through which your child learns our traditions, as well as develops a sense of being part of a larger Jewish community.
We are fortunate to offer the services of two loving and experienced educators who are happy to tutor your child, Rabbi David Siff and Havivah Giangrecco. Our tutors are patient, warm, and friendly, are flexible with timing, and are happy to offer 30-minute, 60 minute, or longer tutoring slots, as many times a week as you want.
Includes up to 30 tutoring sessions & either Shabbat celebration with Kol HaLev, or weekday ceremony of your choice designed together with Rabbi Siff.
Discount: 40% of any tuition paid to Kol HaLev, up to $2,000
Please note, we are committed to making Judaism affordable; please let us know of any unique circumstances, and we will be glad to work with you.
We look forward to helping you make this a meaningful & joyous process!
