Pnei Mitzvah at Peretz
Why “pnei” (faces of) rather than “bnei” (sons of) mitzvah? Because our students asked us for a non-gendered title for our program.
Our Pnei Mitzvah program is a two year bi-weekly class that culminates in a coming of age celebration for families and friends. We approach Jewish identity through a range of topics including genealogy and family history, Jewish history and culture, ethics, traditions, Yiddish and Hebrew language studies and more. Each student takes on a graduation project of their choice and teachers help students learn through field trips, research projects and on-line resources.
Participants from 10 – 16 years are welcome, and the program is flexible to adapt to the needs of each cohort of participants.
Meets every other Sunday 2-4 PM (times are negotiable between families and teachers)
