Adult B’nai Mitzvah

A unique and moving experience

Strengthen your Jewish identity and enhance your connection to the Jewish community in ways you’ve never imagined.

If you did not celebrate a B’nai Mitzvah at age 13, consider our powerful group experience, which includes eight months’ study of Hebrew, liturgy, history, theology and the holidays–all in a safe and communal environment. No prior knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish studies is needed.

This program builds a wide foundation of Jewish knowledge, infuses this knowledge back into your personal life, family life and community life, and empowers you grow. At the conclusion, a group celebration of B’nai Mitzvah will be held and each person in the class will read from the Torah, as they are supported by their community.

If you’re interested in experiencing this pivotal moment, contact Alex Burte, Membership/Program Manager at 513.793.2556.

In Their Own Words

“This class is special to me because it’s giving me a sense of identity, a piece of my life I didn’t get when I was younger.”

“I recognized there were missing pieces in the breadth of my Jewish education. Now that I have explored the meaning of more words and prayers, I feel a much deeper connection to my faith and Jewish heritage.”

“Taking this class was intimidating at first. Now Torah has become a good friend, like this is what I am supposed to be doing and it feels just right.”

“This year of becoming a Bat Mitzvah has been one of Jewish struggle, resulting in so much learning, satisfaction, inspiration and a desire for more.”
