B’Nai Mitzvah Boot Camp

”My B’nai Mitzvah is next year and I am so nervous!!” Don’t be. We’ll take care of you. This camp will give students a jump start on the B’nai Mitzvah training and a chance to bond with their classmates. This will be a fun meaningful week that will help to replace B’nai Mitzvah jitters with confidence and accomplishment.
