Hosting Your B’nei Mitzvah at Emanu-El
B’nei Mitzvah is a Jewish rite of passage — a way to mark our children’s progress along the path of life. As
parents, our job is to guide our children toward becoming independent, contributing members of our
congregation, the Jewish community, and society as a whole. Through years of study at Emanu-El, we
try to instill in our children a sense of purpose, as well as a commitment to tikkun olam.
By becoming B’nei Mitzvah, our young people demonstrate their ongoing commitment to both
Jewish and universal values — values which include Jewish ritual practice, community prayer,
education (both religious and secular), tzedakah and living a moral and ethical life.
