City Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (The)



The ultimate birthday party for a Jewish youngster is the bar or bat mitzvah, a rite of passage into adulthood, generally at age 13. At The City Congregation, the innovative secular celebration follows a 2-year, individual, mentored journey to discover personal beliefs, values, interests, and goals, as well as Jewish or intercultural roots and connections. Jewish history, culture, and ethics are learned in stimulating concurrent classes. The proud and joyous secular bar or bat mitzvah service and celebration is a memorable and meaningful once-in-a-lifetime birthday party. Join in!
