Ceremonies

We offer opportunities throughout the year for families to learn and celebrate together as a Kehillah, a community. We want your family to feel part of the B’nai Amoona family.

Kitah Bet Havdalah

For our students in our religious school, Kitah Bet culminates their study of Havdalah with a special Havdalah service. The students lead Havdalah for their family and friends. This year the ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2018.

Third Grade B’nai Mitzvah Journey

B’nai Mitzvah dates are handed out each year to our third graders. This is done during our B’nai Mitzvah Journey. Parents come together to begin the B’nai Mitzvah journey with a study opportunity with Rabbi Rose and Avital Ostfield. Families consider actions they can begin now in order to start their family on the best path for the B’nai Mitzvah experience they envision. Following the conversation the students begin their journey by receiving their date, a blessing and a book to help mark this important milestone. This year the ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Siddur Ceremony

At our Siddur Ceremony, we honor all of our 3rd grade students with their own siddur. This ceremony recognizes our students increased abilities to become active participants in the synagogue service. The Ceremony is followed by a family Shabbat dinner. This year the ceremony will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017.

Confirmation

Our 9th grade students are Confirmed during a Friday evening service. It is a time when our teens confirm their commitment to Jewish values and observances.  This year the ceremony will be on Friday, May 4, 2018.
