A Bar Mitzvah is not only about learning one’s Torah portion; it is one of life’s big milestones and requires preparation. At Marais Road Shul we provide a fun and meaningful framework to prepare our boys for their big day and beyond. Guiding them as they begin their journey into Jewish adulthood and providing them with the tools to participate and integrate into the community and to continually grow in their own Yidishkeit.
Barmy Army is our exciting learning and experiential program for Grade 7 boys celebrating their Barmy at Marais Road and teaches everything from laying Tefillin to community responsibility. It takes place in a fun and relaxed environment, which incorporates sport, learning, creative activities and outings. Each Barmy boy also has personal sessions with Rabbi Hecht in the weeks leading up to their Bar Mitzvah day.
