JORDAN'S FRIENDS

Welcome to Jordan's Bar Mitzvah website! We're really happy you'll be sharing Jordan's special day with us. Some of you may have never been to a Bar Mitzvah, so you probably have tons of questions. There's more information throughout the website, but here's what you need to know in a nutshell!

click here FOR THE INFO

What is a Bar Mitzvah and what exactly will I be doing there?
At 13, a young Jewish man becomes obligated to observe the commandments of Judaism. "Bar Mitzvah" literally means "son of the commandments." The celebration of a Bar Mitzvah signifies that the young man is beginning and will continue to function as an active and responsible Jew in the synagogue and in the wider Jewish community.

So what does that mean exactly?

Jordan has been learning Hebrew since kindergarten. He's been studying specifically for his Bar Mitzvah over the past year. Jordan will read a lot of Hebrew at the service, but there will also be a good amount of English. He will lead the service and there will be a lot of interesting traditions for you to see.

Please arrive at the synagogue by 10:15 a.m. and expect the service to last for approximately 1.5 hours.

What should I wear?
Girls should wear party dresses. Boys should wear dress pants with a dress shirt. Ties and jackets are optional. They can also wear a suit if they want to.

Please remember that you will be in a place of worship beforehand, so girls--please bring either a light sweater or wrap to cover your shoulders if you're wearing a strapless or sleeveless dress. Boys, you have the option to wear a yarmulke on your head when you enter the synagogue.
