Judaism Your Way Opens Registration for Open Tent Be Mitzvah Program

Judaism Your Way now offering virtual and in person programs preparing Jewish youth for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs

DENVER – Judaism Your Way opened registration on May 25th for the 13th year of its Open Tent Be Mitzvah program, an innovative two-year coming-of-age experience for students entering grades 6 through 8. The Open Tent Be Mitzvah program is based on the organization’s maximally-inclusive mission to be an open tent, welcoming everyone seeking a connection to Jewish life. 

In 90-minute classes over eight months, Open Tent Be Mitzvah students learn about themselves as human beings and explore how they want to live as Jewish adults taking on more responsibility for themselves, their relationships, and the world around them. The program includes unique teaching methods, such as cooking classes, art projects, hiking lectures, and more.

“The Open Tent Be Mitzvah program has always been a unique experience providing a holistic approach for young minds to discover Judaism in their way. After a year of perfecting our virtual events, we are excited to offer in-person classes again, while continuing the online trend with a cohort dedicated to offering our spiritual guidance and comfort to students far beyond the Denver and Boulder city limits.”

–Rabbi Amanda Schwartz, Open Tent Be Mitzvah Director

The Judaism Your Way in-person and virtual classes will begin October 2021. To register for the Open Tent Be Mitzvah program, visit: https://www.judaismyourway.org/open-tent-be-mitzvah.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
