Please RSVP before April 25th, 2014.
Becoming a Bat Mitzvah is a rite of passage, literally meaning Daughter of the Commandments. At the age of 13, she is obligated to observe the commandments and assumes religious responsibility as a Jewish adult. This event is celebrated by the Bat Mitzvah reading from the Torah scroll that contains the ancient Five Books of the Bible, and the Haftarah for the first time before the congregation.
Although this occasion is a celebration, it is first and foremost a religious service.
Please note that to preserve the sanctity of this holy space, everyone is asked to turn off cell phones and to refrain from photography.
Females should have their shoulders covered.
Males may wear a head covering (yarmulke or kippah), simply a sign of respect, not a symbol of religious identification. Yarmulkes will be provided at the start of the service.
