If you’ve been in search of Bar or Bat Mitzvah program that combines Jewish wisdom with outdoor experiences and gives teenagers the skills they need to navigate their turbinate teen years, look no further. In the Adventure B’nai Mitzvah Program, led by Rabbi Jamie Korngold, students climb mountains, camp in Moab, learn to change car tires and how to bake challah.
