A meaningful Kabbalat Mitzvah

Kabbalat Mitzvah, our annual ceremony for Year 7 students, celebrates our B’nei Mitzvah and their coming of age. Students and their families gathered on Tuesday night and heard from members of three generations about their relationship with Shabbat. 

Families then chose from multiple Shabbat-themed sessions including challah plaiting, kiddush cup and challah-cover decorating and mindfulness. Following the sessions, a communal Havdalah ceremony was held and parents presented their children with hand-written messages of hopes and prayers to be placed in each student’s mezuzah. It was a beautiful night for our Year 7 students and their families – thank you to all involved.
