Our Hebrew instructor, Joanne Toledano, leads our Adult Hebrew students through a two-year journey culminating in an Adult B’nei Mitzvah experience. This has been an inspiring experience geared towards any adult who was unable to celebrate their becoming bar or bat mitzvah at the age of 13. Through this life-cycle experience, a class of learners study Hebrew, Torah, ritual and history with Ms. Toledano and our rabbis and cantor.
