Bar/Bat Mitzvahs at Ohev Shalom


Mazal tov on your upcoming simcha!

B’nei mitzvah at Congregation Ohev Shalom are both the culmination of a course of study and the beginning of a lifetime of commitment as a fully obligated member of the Jewish community. We are honored and delighted to guide our young people through this transition which has been so vital to the continuity of our tradition and our people.

If you are new to the area or to our congregational family and have a child approaching the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah, please contact our Youth and Education Director, Amy Geboff ( or visit our religious school page.

If your child is already enrolled in our religious school program and you need another copy of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Year Training Timeline, please contact our clergy assistant, Vann Whitlock ( When you're ready to select a date for your simcha, please fill out the form here (Bar/Bat Mitzvah Date Reservation Form) to get started! We offer tutoring to help your child with learning all the Hebrew, prayers and Haftorah they will need to know for their simcha. Our goal is to make the process of becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah as positive and meaningful as possible for children and their families alike.

If you have additional questions about membership, our programs, our facility, or anything else, don’t hesitate to be in touch with us!

Once again, mazal tov . . . and we look forward to celebrating with you!
