Mitzvah to the Max:

We don’t know any cookie-cutter families, so we don’t create cookie-cutter tours. Same goes for B’nai Mitzvah experiences. Our amazing rabbi will get to know each celebrant individually and personalize the ceremony around each unique cohort of b’nai mitzvah kids, and we’ll pull out all the stops for an incredible celebration that evening. Finally, each celebrant will have an opportunity to participate in a fantastic Mitzvah Project to raise funds for a local children’s home for at-risk kids and youth.
