Bar Mitzvah Program


The Bar-Mitzvah program - for the children of Modiin

It all started five years ago when parents from Modiin came to the Meir Harel Hesder Yeshiva looking for someone to help with preparations for their son’s Bar Mitzvah. One of the yeshiva students obliged and prepared the boy - and his family - every step of the way. Then, another family came with the same request, and another, and another.... This year, approximately 200 boys from non-religious families will take part in the yeshiva’s Bar Mitzvah preparation program which includes:
Ten one-on-one tutorials in Torah reading and Bar Mitzvah traditions with students from the yeshiva
Ten group discussions on basic Jewish values and laws
A “Volunteering Day” for the benefit of the community
A group trip and celebration in the Old City of Jerusalem together with the families

The current annual cost of the yeshiva’s Bar Mitzvah program is $55,000.

The Bar Mitzvah Preparation Center
The yeshiva is planning a Bar Mitzvah Preparation Center, which will include a50-square-meter activity hall equipped with audiovisual equipment, computers with accessible Bar Mitzvah learning aids, and study corners
