Bar/Bat Mitzvah Ideas and Primer for Interfaith Families
We at InterfaithFamily.com compiled the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Ideas and Primer for Interfaith Families as a way to help interfaith families navigate the process of planning a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah ceremony and celebration. It includes detailed information about what takes place at a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah as well as information on ways a child’s interfaith family can participate in the celebrations, and possible limitations on participation in some synagogues.
The resource is divided into sections addressing different aspects of the bar/bat mitzvah process, and ends with specific suggestions for rituals, excerpts to include in a bar/bat mitzvah supplement and recommended books.
The Bar/Bat Mitzvah Ideas and Primer for Interfaith Families is also available as a PDF document.
