B'nai Mitzvah Date Selection Form

Mazel tov ! We are excited to begin planning your child's B'nai Mitzvah with you. 

Please submit this form to indicate your family's interest in a date. I will review the date with the Rabbi and Executive Director and will contact you to confirm. 

When you are exploring dates, please refer to CBI's calendar to make sure there are no B'nai MItzvahs already scheduled for the dates you are considering. 

We are so excited to celebrate this milestone with you!

We ask that each family become a member of Congregation B'nai Israel at the start of their child's B'nai Mitzvah process. This supports our staff in meeting the needs of your family throughout the process, and engages your family in the full breadth of CBI's community life.

If your family is not yet a member of CBI, you can become one easily by filling out our CBI Membership Form at a financial level that works for you.
We know that each family is unique and approaches this milestone with different questions. Please share a bit about yourselves.
Feel free to share your childs’ unique strengths, interests, and challenges.

Date Selection
Q: How do we choose a date for our B'nai Mitzvah?

A: Typically we celebrate B’nai Mitzvah after a young person turns thirteen. Some girls may choose to have their B’nai Mitzvah at the age of twelve. Feel free to discuss with our Executive Director or Rabbi about your choices and options. To get started, please rank your preferred dates for Shabbat morning dates below*:

Please list your Shabbat date preferences below.

*Please note that the following dates are unavailable: Shabbats that fall during all of July, the High Holy Days and the Shabbat following Yom Kippur, the last 2 weeks of December, Presidents Day weekend, and Thanksgiving Day weekend.
That's all! Thank you for taking the first step in preparing for your child's simcha (joyous occasion). We look forward to being in touch with you about next steps!
