B'nei Mitzvah Resources

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah can choose to lead either the Reform, Conservative, or Jerusalem Shabbat service. The minhagim (community customs), nusachim (order of the prayers and musical melodies), length, amount of Hebrew, and other important differences distinguish these three Saturday morning worship options, as well as special considerations for our Zoom Reform and Zhabbat (Conservative) services. B'nai Mitzvah and their families are encouraged to sample them all!
