B’nei Mitzvah

At Or Zarua, we support and encourage participation in ritual and cultural life in our community, and are dedicated to helping our B’nei Mitzvah students chart a course to develop as Jewish adults.

So many of our endeavors can be informed by Jewish wisdom, sparked by Jewish values, and can feel like a part of our Jewish lives even when it’s not so obvious that we’re on a Jewish path. As such, as part of our youth’s preparation for B’nei Mitzvah, we seek to build bridges to the many varied aspects of our community, to facilitate exploration of different interests and commitments in our Jewish lives.
