Congregation Bonai Shalom is proud to announce the upcoming Bar and Bat Mitzvahs of our Adult B’nai Mitzvah class, the culmination of 18 months of weekly study. Jeff Davis, Nancy Davis, Robyn Hill, Steve Hill, Judy Megibow and Beth Ornstein will celebrate on June 11 by leading the Torah service, reading Torah, leading Musaf, and delivering the D’var Torah. Children of some of the participants will also read Torah and Haftorah. Due to scheduling conflicts, Dr. Marilyn Carrol will celebrate independently in August. Instructors Rabbi Marc Soloway and Froma Fallik comment that they have thoroughly enjoyed teaching this wonderful class.
