brit mitzvah program

In Jewish tradition, one does not have a Brit Mitzvah; one becomes a Brit Mitzvah. The traditional term Bar/bat Mitzvah literally means "son/daughter of the commandment.” BRIT Mitzvah, a gender-inclusive term, means, [entering] the covenant of Mitzvah/commandment. In becoming brit mitzvah, a Jewish person of at least 13 years of age accepts their part in the Jewish people’s covenant (agreement) through observing the mitzvot (commandments); they thus become an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community. Our Brit Mitzvah students and their families work to create a unique and meaningful expression of this rite of passage. The process leading up to the event is the key to making the experience meaningful. The Brit Mitzvah experience offers not only the child, but also the whole family a rewarding journey of growth and study. 

Our requirements for Jewish education are intended to set the stage for meaningful Jewish learning. We require a minimum three-year education commitment designed to empower young adults with knowledge of our sacred texts and worship traditions infused with community values. For children and adults with special learning needs, CBH offers the opportunity to individualize a process that will sufficiently challenge but not act as a barrier. This can be easily designed with the guidance of the rabbi and the approval of the Education Committee CBH encourages all members to consider preparing for a Brit Mitzvah. Adults who would like to participate in a Brit Mitzvah ceremony may arrange a course of study with the rabbi.
