B'nai Mitzvah

TRZ offers a comprehensive B’nai Mitzvah program administered by our Cantor. Our peer-tutoring program pairs students with an older teen throughout their course of study. The Cantor and Rabbi work to prepare students for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration, building upon the groundwork established within our religious school program. Each B’nai Mitzvah learns to conduct prayers, read from the Torah, chant the Haftarah and deliver their special interpretation of what the Torah portion has taught them. Parents participate in the service, passing down the important Jewish meaning of this moment. Our goal is to help students hone their synagogue and Hebrew skills so they feel at home during services and achieve a greater sense of comfort in any synagogue during their lifetime.

Ashrei Academy

The Ashrei Academy is an exclusive club for those students who have demonstrated complete mastery of chanting the Ashrei. Members qualify by singularly chanting the Ashrei four times at a public service held at Temple Ramat Zion. Upon completion the student is granted membership into the Academy, receives a lapel pin, a $10.00 gift card to Menchies, as well as, a name plate on the Ashrei Academy Plaque of Recognition.
