Meeting with Rabbi Korngold (Included):
The months before the Bar or Bat Mitzvah, please schedule two meetings with Rabbi Korngold at AR Headquarters. During these meetings we will plan and rehearse the service. You will have the opportunity to read all your prayers, Torah, and speeches to the Rabbi.

Parents will want to be part of these meetings. This will be an opportunity for your family to personalize the service by choosing friends and family to lead readings, read prayers, present the tallis and many other honors.

Community (Student Membership Included):
We invite and encourage your family to participate in the many events run by the Adventure Rabbi Program. This will create an opportunity for your family to get to know Rabbi Korngold, as well as other families involved in our Bar and Bat Mitzvah program. To this end, we have included a student Adventure Rabbi membership with your enrollment. The membership begins with the first class and ends with the last class. Only the student receives this membership, although we welcome the rest of your family to join!

This is the Adventure Rabbi Program, not the Slacker Rabbi Program. Bar and Bat Mitzvah students must be in reasonable physical shape to participate in this group. You do not have to be an incredible athlete, but you shouldn't be a couch potato who hates hiking.

Bar and Bat mitzvah students must be willing to meet 7 requirements to be accepted to this program:

1. Be able to hike uphill without stopping for 30 minutes.

2. Enjoy social situations with peers and be willing and able to work with a group. Be willing to bring in any student who feels left out.

3. Students may make-up two classes by reading assigned chapters of Rabbi Korngold's books and writing about them. Missed classes may not include orientation, first hike, or Deer Mt Climb. After two missed classes, the third missed class is made up by private study with Elaine at a cost of $125/hour.

4. Be ready to learn! There are no Hebrew or Religious school prerequisites for this class but you must be ready to learn. Students are expected to be respectful of the Rabbi, other staff and each other. Although this is a fun program, it is still academically rigorous and school rules apply.

5. Complete and email the rabbi two homework assignments a month. These are shared via GoogleDocs. They generally take 30 minutes to write-up.

6. Parents must be willing to join our class Facebook group where our we post important information.

7. Students must complete the required Hebrew prayers, Torah verses and speeches before the ceremony. (Students must learn to read in Hebrew, not transliteration.)

Students that are unable to meet these requirements may be switched to the individual program.

THIS CLASS IS NOW FULL. If you would like to be on the waiting list, please register and the deposit will be returned to you if you do not get in.
