A Meaningful Ceremony

Belonging to a synagogue and attending Hebrew school are not prerequisites for celebrating a bar or bat mitzvah. Your child becomes a bar/bat mitzvah simply by turning 13 (or 12, in some communities). There are no particular ritual obligations, and though chanting Torah or haftarah is customary, it may not be the best choice for your family. Bar/bat mitzvah youngsters can learn to lead a havdalah service, for instance. They can complete a course of study and teach on a Jewish topic that is meaningful to them. They can present some other personalized capstone project—perhaps something artistically creative—related to Jewish learning or action. Or they may have another idea altogether.

How Does It Work?

Preparation for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony generally involves Rabbi Shai  coming to the families’ home via Skype or Google voice, to work with the child or children (or adults who wish to have a Bar/Bat Mitzvah).  This is a convenient option for many families who find it difficult to transport their children to and from the synagogue two or three times per week. It also allows for greater scheduling flexibility wherein the Rabbi works with the student at a time that doesn't conflict with other activities and obligations. Study takes place 3-6 months prior to the ceremony, and includes a Mitzvah project that the whole family can participate in.

With many direct flights from nearly everywhere, and many affordable attractions for the whole family, Las Vegas is the ideal place to have a destination Bar/Bat mitzvah ceremony. Not to mention a fun place to have a party!
