Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club

We are looking for students with a Bar / Bat Mitzvah in 2015/2016 who are seeking to prepare for this experience with peers in a program suited to their needs. This program is tailored for students who have:

  • difficulty with social situations in comparison to their same-aged peers (such as children with social anxiety, gifted learning disabilities, non-verbal learning disabilities and Asperger's syndrome);
  • challenges that can be re-directed with supports;
  • an understand, appreciation or knowledge of their own interpersonal challenges.
The Bar / Bat Mitzvah Club is spearheaded by a cadre of educators, clergy and committed congregants, together with a team of skilled, highly trained experts in various fields, including group facilitators with many years of experience working with kids with special needs. 

The program will consist of nine evening sessions with dinner. A valuable and voluntary parent group will run concurrently with the children's sessions. The highly subsidized cost of the Bar / Bat Mitzvah Prep Club is $700. For more information, please contact Daniel Silverman at 416-781-3514 ext 231. 

This program has been made possible thanks to the Elizabeth Rose Herman Education Bursary of Beth Tzedec Congregation with partial funding provided by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.
