Open Temple

B Mitzvah: The Newest Innovation of Jew

Your home. A backlot studio. The Baal Shem Tov Forest in the Galilee. A golf course. The Western Wall in Jerusalem. The beach. A community synagogue in Los Angeles. Open Temple creates sacred spaces in the world surrounding us. Read what was featured in the Jewish Journal about Open Temple’s customizable B Mitzvahs.

At Open Temple, each bar and bat mitzvah is an opportunity for our community to renew our Jewish Journeys and renew our vision through the lens of our bar or bat mitzvah – the newest innovation of Jew. Read what David Suissa wrote about an Open Temple Bar Mitzvah at the Museum of the Holocaust.

B Mitzvah also includes Hebrew lessons on Mondays afternoons during January, February, and March.

The evening was amazing, the service was more than wonderful and one that everyone is still talking about. Our friends and family were left with a feeling of knowing what they sat through – a loving, warm service that transmitted the knowledge of what the process was all about. They experienced a Bar Mitzvah in a way none have done so before (as did we).
