B’nei Mitzvah is one of the most celebrated Jewish milestones, but it is not a one-time event. It is a celebration of just one of the many significant moments along the path of one’s Jewish journey. Learners on the journey are immersed in a sense of moral obligation toward all people, of being an integral member of the Jewish people, of being loved and cherished by one’s clergy and educator, of answering the call to participate with “Hineini – Here I Am,” and of having a place of leadership within the Jewish community, well beyond B’nei Mitzvah. Temple Beth Sholom values the individual lives and souls of each of our students, our learners. We honor and care about the dreams and aspirations that each student and his or her family brings to the process. We value the Jewish tradition of immersion in the core mitzvot that signify a Jew’s coming of age, including lifelong learning, engagement in the wider community and being a partner in making Temple Beth Sholom a “Kehilah Kedosha,” a holy community.
