Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah at New City Jewish Center

At NCJC, a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is not just a party; it is a Jewish milestone worth celebrating. The Bnai Mitzvah process begins at NCJC in 4th grade with the assignment of a date, but there are many steps between the time you receive your date and your child’s simcha both in terms of education and planning for the event. Please download the PDF of our Bnai Mitzvah packet and review together as a family to better familiarize yourselves with this special journey to Jewish adulthood.

If you have any questions about the process or difficulty in downloading the document, please contact Lynne Diwinsky, Director of Formal Learning, at or by phone at 845.638.9600 x.115.
