“Watching your child read from the Torah is a moving experience! All their hard work shines through. The dedication and support we had from this Jewish community are what we all needed to reach this momentous accomplishment. “ -- Angie Saltzman


Rabbi Simone Schicker, private tutors, and teachers of the Marvin and Rosalie Okun Kalamazoo Community Jewish School (OKCJS) prepare our children for their bar/bat/bet/b'nai mitzvah.

Parents play a crucial role in this life-changing journey by assisting their children with additional studying and with the completion of their mitzvah projects. In this context mitzvah is translated as “good deed” or “community service.” The dictionary translation of mitzvah is “commandment.”

B’nai mitzvah (translated as children of the commandments) is a milestone in the religious life of students. 


To start the process, and to ask any questions, please set up a meeting with Rabbi Schicker here.
