Each student will write a short speech to be given on the morning of the b’nei mitzvah service. The speech will include a brief overview of the Torah portion, a lesson from the portion that the student found relevant and how that lesson is applicable today. Of course, there is also a spot for thanking parents and all others involved.
The student and at least one parent meet with the rabbi approximately two months before the service to discuss the Torah portion in preparation for writing.
Understanding that all children are different, we adapt our course of study for b’nei mitzvah to meet the needs and ability levels of each individual student.
