Shalom and Welcome!

Rabbi Betsy Roth

Are you 13 or 83 or somewhere in between?  It is never too late to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  Bar Mitzvah Your Way offers Bar and Bat Mitzvah lessons for the young – and the young at heart.

My name is Rabbi Betsy Roth.  For years I have been partnering with families to craft a personal Bar/Bat Mitzvah Service for you, your child(ren), a family member, or friend.  We work together to form a Service that meets your needs and creates a unique, spiritual and engaging day for everyone involved.

Bar Mitzvah Your WayPeople come to me from all walks of life.  Wherever you are Jewishly, that is where we begin.  I work with individuals who are Hebrew literate or just starting out on their Jewish path.

I am especially sensitive to InterFaith families.  So, my Services are very inclusive!  I have experience with special needs children and work tirelessly to make their Bar/Bat Mitzvah a day they and their families will never forget.

My goal as your Service Leader is to generate a Service that is meaningful and memorable.  My goal as a teacher is to create a comfort zone and establish a warm relationship that promotes trust and motivation.

Regardless of background or knowledge, all that matters is your desire to celebrate this transformative life-cycle event.  I am here to support you on this path to embrace and experience this tradition in Your Way!
