A child passes through the sacred portal to adulthood, a personal and intimate tradition we celebrate as a Bar Mitzvah and Bat 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 our Religious School preparing children for Bar and Bat Mitzvah, beginning in Grade 4. 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, the Irmas Campus on the westside.
