Your child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of the most important religious milestones in your family's life. At Beth Tfiloh we include your entire family in a year of special programming designed to make your child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah a learning experience for all. Girls can have a Saturday morning Bat Mitzvah service within a Modern Orthodox framework, and can also choose to conduct a Women's Mincha tefillah on Shabbat afternoon.

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah process begins in the fall following a child's 10th birthday. Dates are assigned in January/February of the following year. Family programming begins in the fall following the child's 11th birthday. Private instruction begins 8-12 months prior to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah date. For complete details on making your child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Beth Tfiloh, contact Dan Silien, Executive Director, at 410-413-2202 or

Our banquet rooms provide a variety of options for your reception, whether you prefer a buffet luncheon or a formal evening affair. 

Please note that a Beth Tfiloh Bar/Bat Mitzvah is available only to families who are congregation members. Fees include private Bar/Bat Mitzvah instruction and a full year of family programs, including special religious services, Shabbat and holiday meals, guest speakers, learning sessions with our rabbis and social gatherings.
