Anshei Mitzvah Program
The Anshei Mitzvah program, taught by Cantor Roslyn Barak, has been in session for over 20 years, and offers an opportunity for adults who never officially became Bar or Bat Mitzvah to finally experience this milestone event. This is accomplished through the study of basic Hebrew reading, Shabbat prayers, and Torah and Haftarah texts. The ceremony takes place at a Shabbat morning service. Participants in the course lead prayer, read Torah, instruct the congregation in the meaning and relevance of the biblical portions, and share words of inspiration. More than 150 adults have taken part in this program and it is one of the most successful of Emanu-El’s adult education offerings.
There will be no Anshei Mitzvah 2012 – 2013.
