Jewish Rites of Passage – Once in a Lifetime!
I have facilitated many bar/bat mitzvot over the years and concluded that more often than not, young people are not connected to this important rite of passage in the way they could be.
This reality saddens me because a bar/bat mitzvah celebration comes around once in a lifetime and has the potential to be very beautiful. I remember mine well, and most people I’ve asked have very fond and warm memories of their great day.
Therefore when I sit with the celebrants and their parents my goal is to encourage them to find a magical and special relationship between them and their bar/bat mitzvah.
As a BAR/BAT MITZVAH COACH I compel the young women/men to think hard about who they are as a Jew and human being and wonder about their relationship to the Jewish community, the world and God.
I ask questions such as: what are you passionate about? What do you love in life? What does this day say to you, and what about your Torah portion resonates? We discuss their Torah portion and life.
I want to know who the bar/bat mitzvah celebrants are, and I am intent upon them having an appreciation for their own gifts and how that can play out at the Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Once again, my goal over 2 1-hour sessions is to create an environment whereby the family, and in particular the bar/bat mitzvah participant will sense and feel a strong bond with this simchah (celebration).
It is a beautiful day and so important it is maximized.
That is BAR/BAT MITZVAH COACHING.
If you are interested in my services please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will tell you more about how Bar/Bat Mitzvah Coaching works and what you can expect from it.
Consider how much money you will spend on flowers and a band, and then ask yourself it isn’t worth it to spend $500 to ensure a day, unlike any other….one in which your celebration is powerful and your family will feel great amount of joy and happiness.
