SHIR LIBEYNU COMMUNITY

INTERESTED IN AN ADULT BAT/BAR MITZVAH?
 
April 15, 2017/5777 has been designated as the Shabbat service for those who would like to celebrate their Bat/Bar Mitzvah by chanting Torah as part of a group. R eading Hebrew is an asset, but for those who can't read Hebrew, and who want to be part of this, there is time to learn enough to be part of this group.  All members are welcome and we will work together
 
Depending on how many want to take part, each person will chant a couple of verses of the Torah portion (or more). It is an ideal situation for those who have not had the chance to become a Bat/Bar Mitzvah and who want to reaffirm their commitment to living a Jewish life in this way.
 
Barbara Cooper will coordinate the preparation for this celebration with those who wish to take part. Participants will study the Torah portion and learn how to chant. It can take six to eight weeks to prepare, depending on the number of people taking part. There are many variables, but Barbara will meet weekly with individuals/the group in February and March. There will be a small fee.
 
If you are interested, please be in touch with Barbara at adultbneimitzvah@shirlibeynu.ca  by November 1.
 
We will meet once in November to determine the form of the celebration and set the time frame for getting together prior to April 15.
