Adult bnai mitzvah interest



Considering an Adult B’nai Mitzvah? Wonderful!
Over the next two years there will be courses with you in mind--Biblical & Prayerbook Hebrew, Trope, Parshanut (Commentaries), Becoming a Teacher of Torah, and more. For those interested in taking these courses towards becoming an Adult B’nai Mitzvah to be held in the summer of 2024, please provide the information below.

Our first meet up is Wednesday, Nov 16, 7:30pm via zoom to gather to discuss logistics, study and celebrate the decision to take on this opportunity.

Please note that we are still designing this experience and welcome your input.

Note: If you are considering becoming an adult b’nai mitzvah and not yet Jewish please visit our Exploring Judaism page for next steps - 

Should you desire to take on this opportunity there will be an overall B’nai Mitzvah Fee of $2,000 that includes Life Cycle & Learning & Mentoring Fees (similar to our model for b’nai mitzvah students).

This fee will cover costs for:
  • all courses designated as pre-adult b’nai mitzvah
  • a series of 24 hour-long sessions with a b’nai mitzvah mentor to practice prayers, trope, and the student’s Torah portion in addition to general b’nai mitzvah mentoring. (Students who need additional tutoring should arrange for payment directly with their mentors.)
  • support for the b’nai mitzvah experience provided by TBI including: logistic details, additional education-related communications, private sessions with the rabbis, all the materials relevant to the course of study, and the gift of a Tanakh.
