Scheduling Guidelines for Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Scheduling Guidelines for B’nai Mitzvah
Being Called to the Torah at the JCA

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah will normally be called to the Torah on the first available Shabbat morning following the child’s 13th birthday. Children who are in the first half of their 7th grade year at the time of their 13th birthday will be scheduled on a Shabbat during the second half of their 7th grade year.

B’nai Mitzvah will be scheduled no earlier than two calendar years before the child’s 13th birthday and no later then midway through the 6th grade year.

Please complete this form by the beginning of your student’s 6th grade year.
