Bar and Batmitzvahs

Bar or Bat Mitzvah at The Great is a memorable occasion. Our courses at Reddam House School, Rose Bay Public School and Bellevue Hill Public School prepare boys and girls for this important event. We can recommend excellent teachers for boys to learn their leining. Our Rabbi invites every Bar and Bat Mitzvah family to his home for a Shabbat meal, and meets with them to build a relationship at this special time.


At a Bar Mitzvah, a boy will read as much of the Torah and the Haftarah as he is comfortable with, and his male relatives and friends will be given honours during the service. At a Bat Mitzvah, a girl can address the congregation before Adom Olam, before receiving a blessing from the Rabbi while her female relatives open the Ark. Her male relatives and friends will also receive honours during the service. The Rabbi will give a sermon with special attention to the Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
The Rabbi is always happy to make special arrangements to suit particular needs and circumstances.
