Bar and Bat Mitzvahs


The celebration of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an important event in the coming of age of a child.

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is more than just a ceremony or a day’s celebration. Primarily the Bar and Bat Mitzvah is to prepare our children for the responsibilities of being a Jewish adult. 

Please click here for the costs of holding a Bar or Bat Mitzvah Kiddush at the ACTJC.

There will be additional costs for wait staff ($40/hr with a minimum of 3 hours) and security staff (approx $50/hr).

These costs may vary and depend on the number of guests.



We commence our Bar and Bat Mitzvah program in February for children who will be celebrating their Bar or Bat mitzvah in that year. 

The program may include:

  • A monthly father/son, mother/daughter program for an hour and a half (other role models may join such as grandparents, aunts and uncles).
  • A monthly joint program with the child for an hour and a half during Cheder.
  • A project to be completed during the year.
  • A chessed/charity project to be presented at the end of the year.
  • Meetings with the Rabbi or teacher to prepare the drasha.
  • Attendance at two shabbatons during the year.

The above is in addition to the training your child will need to undertake  for the actual Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony.
