New variation for the Bar Mitzvah ceremony
The guests are taking an integral part in the play, which is written especially for the event, depending on the subject and the character of the family
The Torah reading takes place at the intimate family forum as a secular ceremony with some religious meaning
The weekly "Parashah" is an invitation to define the personal content and the emotional and ethical values to become part of the event

What is the reading of the Torah?
Five Chumashim (Pentateuch) are divided affairs unfurling throughout the year. Every Saturday morning in the synagogue the relevant "Parashah" is read - it is an ancient text as part of the traditional ceremony, accompanied by blessings and honors.

We offer a new and different variation:

The Guided Torah reading takes place at the intimate family gathering and suggests a meaningful secular interpretation to the religious ceremony.

The weekly "Parashah" is an invitation to set the personal aspects, emotions and values that we want to pour into the event so we will use it together thorough as a basis to formulate the "my believe" of the Bar Mitzvah boy and as part of the whole family. This Adolescence rite marks the boy's accession to the adult world, while taking responsibility and allowing him to be heard as an equal.

We design the ceremony to include some "talents" of family members and friends that we identify together, who will take part in the event. It could also include blessings, short theatrical/play performances that we direct, music, presentations, videos and other content elements that are related to the event, and of course, the highlight is the Sermon of the Bar Mitzvah boy that we help him to write.

The Reading:
The spectrum is wide and depends on each family; you can combine the above with family reading of the whole "Parashah" or selected parts of it, or just the "Haftarah".

For those interested, it is possible to run the solemn prayer before the reading.
