The Fig Tree B’Nai Mitzvah Year is a values-based, program that encourages students to explore what it means to take action for justice and commit to service work, within the context of Jewish text, history, ritual and culture. B'Nai Mitzvah classes feature more advanced content on Jewish holidays, ritual, culture, history and text, and also cover B-Mitzvah-relevant topics including crafting a D’Var Torah and planning a Mitzvah Project. In addition to weekly classes, the B'nai Mitzvah cohort meets once per month for group service learning projects. A calendar with class times and service project dates will be provided before the start of the school year. The B'Nai Mitzvah year culminates in a celebration, where family, friends and Fig Tree classmates gather in community to honor and acknowledge the B-Mitzvah cohort’s year of hard work and service commitment.
