These beautiful Shabbat services are open to everyone. Watching our young congregants become a Bat or Bar Mitzvah is a source of pride for the whole Congregation Sha'aray Shalom Community! When we attend one of these Shabbat Services we support and celebrate the B'nai Mitzvah student's years of study, hard work and their and their family's commitment to this rich Jewish heritage and wonderful community.
