The Journey to Adulthood (J2A) program is our Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for students and their parent(s) alike. Over the course of a year, parents and children will learn together and delve deeper into the meaning and practice of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah.  They will meet periodically throughout the year on Sundays from 11am - 12pm for an interactive discussion to build community and learn as we journey together through this special stage of your lives as families. Read about each workshop session here.
