B'nai Mitzvahs are Back @SZBE


Individual Bar and Bat Mitzvah

Shaare Zion Beth-El Congregation is proud to be the synagogue of choice for dozens of B’nai Mitzvah celebrations annually. We pride ourselves on our excellent teachers, engaging monthly program, the beauty of our religious services and elegance of our halls.

There are several opportunities for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah to be called to the Torah:


  • Shabbat Morning
  • Shabbat Minchah-Ma’ariv-Havdallah
  • Monday or Thursday Morning
  • Festival days (Rosh Chodesh, Sukkot, Chanukah, etc)

Both boys (age 13) and girls (age 12-13) are eligible to have an aliyah, read from the Torah and chant the Haftarah. For non-Shabbat morning celebrations, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah can learn to lead elements of the prayer service. Use one of our halls for the celebratory Seudat Mitzvah (special meal) afterwards.

The office will take reservations up to three years in advance. To make your Bar/Bat Mitzvah reservation, please contact Myriam Bensimon, Executive Director at 514-481-7727 ext. 227 or
