Chizuk Amuno Congregation

Connected@Chizuk

We welcome you and your family to continue to learn and pray with us each day in ways that we
believe will elevate your search for meaning and deepen your faith.

We also invite you to keep in touch, reach out to us in times of need, and stay informed as
we explore together the challenges and responses to COVID-19 through a Jewish lens.

Although our campus is temporarily closed, our community and all that we are able to
offer at this time remain available and open to you in new and exciting ways. Some of our current offerings are listed below.
May we all enjoy in peace, community, and good health!

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is actually the celebration of a beginning, as the child starts to take responsibility for his or her own Jewish identity. Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations take place within the three Jewish contexts of family, Jewish community, and the synagogue service. A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a joyous event for the family as well as for our entire congregation.

Parents of bar/bat mitzvah students must be members of Chizuk Amuno at least three years before their child’s bar or bat mitzvah. The student must have completed at least six years of religious education and be currently enrolled in a formal program of religious instruction. Our goal is to help our children grow into their awareness of the obligations and privileges of belonging to the adult Jewish community.

For detailed information on requirements, preparation, training, and event planning, contact Marci Scher.
