Aliyah Sheet Guidelines

B’nei Mitzvah families should review these guidelines as they select people for Aliyot during the service. The Aliyah sheet is due back to the office two Mondays prior to the service. 

Photography Guidelines

B’nei Mitzvah families may bring in a photographer to have pictures taken in the Sanctuary in conjunction with B’nei Mitzvah Services. Please contact the Administrative Assistant for your assigned officiating Rabbi to schedule your photography session. These guidelines are intended to facilitate a safe and smooth process.

Renting Space for Celebrations

Families are invited to submit contracts to use the social hall for kiddush lunches and/or evening celebrations once they receive their bar/bat mitzvah dates. After the initial submission period (usually a month in the spring), the social hall is available on a first come, first served basis. 

If you are interested in renting the social hall following your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, please contact Helena Peter at
