Grade 7: B'Mitzvotav: Preparing for Jewish Adulthood

Information will be updated regularly throughout the Summer of 2020

as we plan for the Fall of 2020. 

KESHER families will be notified when there are updates. 

Grade 7 learners are preparing and becoming adult members of the community as they prepare and become Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Their time at LT is different from their prior years and has the following components:

  • Thursday Afternoon Jewish Learning. Our Thursday program includes Jewish Identity, Reform Judaism, the Holocaust, Mitzvah projects and more. This program will either take place online or in person, times TBD. (Pre-COVID-19, this program took place with the full grade between 4 - 5:30 pm).
  • Bar and Bat Mitzvah Preparation. Based upon one's Bar/Bat Mitzvah date, learners take Doin' Drash with Rabbi Sirkman on Tuesday afternoons (online or in-person) the semester prior to one's Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Your child falls into one of three categories:
    • Fall (September - December) 2020 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Date: Your son/daughter has already taken Doin' Drash as a 6th Grader.
    • Spring (January - June) 2021 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Date: Your son/daughter will take Doin Drash from September 2020 - mid-January 2021.
    • Fall (September - December) 2021 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Date: Your son/daughter will take Doin' Drash from mid-January - May 2021.  
  • Hebrew. Grade 7 learners keep up with their Hebrew weekly. In the past, this happened on Tuesday afternoons, and there will likely be a choice of days and times for online Hebrew learning for the Fall of 2020.
