Interior Sanctuary

B'nei Mitzvah

A child passes through the sacred portal to adulthood, a personal and intimate tradition we celebrate as a B'nei Mitzvah. Through this cherished moment we reaffirm our ancient traditions and culture with yet another promise to live a life of kindness, civility, and making the world a better place. 

Here at Wilshire Boulevard Temple, it starts with Brawerman Elementary School and our Religious School preparing children for B'nei Mitzvah. The process accelerates in Grades 6 and 7 through meetings with our clergy, culminating in a beautiful Shabbat morning ceremony at either our historic Glazer Campus, Irmas Campus, or University Campus.
