Emanuel Synagogue

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

At Emanuel Synagogue becoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah is not just an event, it’s an experience; it’s a journey you take with your family and community.

We offer you and your child a contemporary and meaningful understanding of Jewish tradition with an opportunity for you to find your own place within it. Our B‘nei Mitzvah students develop a personal relationship with the rabbis, a connection with synagogue life and a grounded knowledge of Torah and what it what it means to them.

We do not differentiate based on gender; we empower each student to have access to Torah. We inspire Jewish literacy and encourage leadership and responsibility of the Jewish people.

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah process is a very special and personal experience and the entire staff at Emanuel Synagogue are here to ensure an engaging and uplifting journey for your family.

You can contact us on (02) 9389 6444 or email info@emanuel.org.au at any time and we will direct you to the right person.

Preparation for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony is an exciting process and we want you to feel nurtured and celebrated throughout this journey – in addition to tutoring and meetings with our Rabbis, we also offer the Yesod program. The program runs parallel to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation process, adding a dynamic and social learning environment on our campus to enrich your child’s coming of age experience.
We strongly encourage all students, especially those not attending a Jewish Day School, to enrol in Yesod alongside their Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation process.
