The First Narayever Congregation is a participatory community that seeks to find meaning and joy in Jewish life cycle events. Through ongoing participation and education, members can experience personal growth in a traditional egalitarian
The Narayever believes that a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is part of a process of Jewish learning and commitment. Education begins long before the actual event and will, we hope, continue through adulthood. For those who do not attend shul regularly, the few years
before the Bar/Bat Mitzvah event is a wonderful opportunity to begin to do so. A family centered approach to synagogue participation gives everyone maximum benefit of this Jewish religious simcha. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah period is also a wonderful opportunity for families to undertake activities relating to Tikun Olam (repair of the world). Families who would like information about opportunities should contact the Rabbi or the Social Action Committee.
It is the policy of the synagogue that all children of members of the First Narayever Congregation have the opportunity to celebrate becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah with the shul community.
