3rd & 4th Grade Covenant Program


If you have a child born in 2009 who will become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the year 2022, we invite you to join us for a special Parent/Child Learning Day at Temple on Sunday, December 9, from 9:30am-12noon. 

Throughout the morning, we will have the opportunity to study together and learn why Torah study and the Bar/Bat Mitzvah is so important in a young adult's Jewish journey. For those who have attended this program before with an older child, we encourage you to attend the program again with your child born in 2009, as you will have many opportunities to learn with your child throughout the morning and offer him/her a special blessing with the Torah. Additionally, we will discuss the timeline of the process, how dates are assigned, what is required of your child, the clergy role in the process, and your family's role during the Bar/Bat Mitzvah weekend. Finally, there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions regarding your special event. At the conclusion of the program, you will receive the form which enables us to assign a date for your child in 2022.
