Adult B'nei Mitzvah Class

"I wanted to become a Bat Mitzvah because I felt ignorant about so much of what goes on during a service.  Through this class, I am now much more comfortable during services." – Susan Cohen

“I never had a Bat Mitzvah when I was 13. I was not familiar with the prayers or the Hebrew, and I had never studied Torah.” – Judy Mahan

“I am lucky to be part of an awe-inspiring group of Jewish adults all working and learning together. It has been an immense privilege and so humbling to learn with Rabbi 
Gorban and my adult B’nei Mitzvah group this year.” – Liz Miller

“This past year of studying with our B’nei Mitzvah class has been nourishment for my spirit.” – Louise Malakoff
