In addition, we also study Church history, Jewish History, Symbolism, Apologetics, and the history of Jewish Liturgy. Class convenes at 3:00pm each Shabbat following Oneg.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah Classes
with Rabbi Yossi
Bar/Bat Mitzvah means a son/daughter of the Commandments. This class is open to boys from the ages of 12 and up and girls from the ages of 11 and up. Traditionally a boy becomes a bar mitzvah at the age of 13 and a girl becomes a bat mitzvah at the age of 12. Beit Shofarot invites any of our members of these ages and older who would like to go through the program to do so. It is open to both Jewish and Non-Jewish peoples and is about a yearlong study. If you are interested or have a child that you would like to enroll, please see Rabbi Yossi for more information concerning the requirements.
Beit Shofarot is proud to have an excellent media department. Barry heads up the technical process at Beit Shofarot while Alannah heads up the Graphic and Web Design department. Jointly Barry (I.T./Security) and Alannah (Design) manage the website department. Currently, the Web Department has three members; Alannah, Barry, and Tonya.
