Celebrating a Barmitzvah at the Sandton Shul is truly a memorable occasion. In addition to the magnificent Shul, full Choral service and beautiful facilities much effort is made to ensure a personalized, meaningful and uplifting experience for the Barmitzvah boy and his family.
What is a Barmitzvah?
According to Jewish law, at the age of thirteen a boy is no longer considered a minor and is responsible to fulfill all the Torah’s commandments. The term “bar mitzvah” literally means “son of the mitzvah,” or one who is obligated in mitzvah observance.

The obligation is automatic, whether or not a celebration or special ceremony is held. But since becoming a bar mitzvah is such an important milestone and joyous occasion, we make a point of celebrating together with family and friends.

To book your Bar Mitzvah or to find out more please contact the Shul office on 011 8834210 and one of our friendly office staff will assist you further. The Rabbis will also be happy to assist.
