What will your son learn?

There is a lot to get done in preparation for a boy's Bar Mitzvah.


JRCC of Willowdale and the City's Bar Mitzvah program combines group learning and individual Hebrew reading lessons to make a boy's entrance into Jewish manhood enjoyable and meaningful. 

Hebrew reading: Each child's Hebrew reading level will be assessed

entering the club. They will continue on their own level to master the

full Hebrew Alef bet together with all the vowels, guided by their

instructor. When they are reading satisfactorily they will continue

with the specific Torah portion for the week they will be called up to

the Torah.


Putting on Tefillin: Each child will be taught how to put on Tefillin. They

will be given the opportunity to learn how to place the straps on their

head and arm and be guided to make the proper blessing in preparation

for their Bar Mitzvah day.

Reading from the Torah: Each child will be given a specific portion of
the Torah which they will be called up to read on the day of their Bar

Mitzvah. They will be guided in class to read with the correct tune and

pronunciation. Emphasis will also be placed on the blessings prior to

reading from the Torah.

Many other topics will be discussed and analyzed, such as:
Core jewish Beliefs
Why Jewish
Jewish Calendar
Jewish heroes
