Father/Son Bar Mitzvah Program
With Rabbi Tzvi Sytner
Rabbi Sytner’s wildly popular Father-Son Bar Mitzvah program was buzzing with excitement during its 10- week run. Forty Fathers and Sons embarked on a journey of reflection and self-discovery – to connect with themselves, with each other and with their Judaism. While exploring practical topics such as having a win-win attitude and how to acquire effective communication and listening skills, the classes also featured fascinating guest speakers, such as a Hatzoloh responder, a former IDF soldier and a Holocaust survivor.
After learning about the mitzvah of Tefillin, those who turned 13 were invited to partake in the 40-Day Tefillin Challenge along with their Fathers, posting selfies in a WhatsApp group. The excitable energy and comradery of the group was palpable to all.
