Bar/t Mitzvah Ceremonies at Temple Shabbat Shalom

A Congregational Family with meaningful Bar and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations

We Americans are blessed with stylish and splendid Temples with learned Rabbis as spiritual advisors. Synagogues have almost unlimited material resources. Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebration are spectacular, almost like weddings. This should be a blessing.

What are we to do, however, if Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah or Confirmation are revolving doors, an estrangement from Judaism? What are we celebrating when the ceremony is a rite of passage out of religion? Temple Shabbat Shalom offers an alternative.

All spiritual education at our Temple is a focus on the family. We do not and never will have a drop off Hebrew or Sunday school. Every Bar and Bat Mitzvah is a family event. Synagogue and leadership skills are taught to parents and children. Torah reading and Haphtarah are learned on computer with the help of a Trope Tutor.

We have a travelling Torah and will bring it to your celebration.

Temple Shabbat Shalom is a non-denominational synagogue in Porter Corners N.Y. a rural suburb of Saratoga Springs.

Call today to discuss membership in our Temple.
