reBar: adult education at Open Temple

Inspired by community partner Reboot (, Open Temple launches its own ReBar project.  A 13-week program towards adult bar and bat mitzvah.

Taught by rabbis trained through Orthodox, Conservative and Reconstructionist methods, ReBar participants travel in an adult education time machine through Jewish literature, wisdom and spiritual practices.

To help cover expenses, we request each student to contribute a tax deductible $360. Don’t let that deter you – all are welcome.

For more information or to join ReBar contact or call (310) 821-1414.

ReBar. Re-casting 30 as the age when adulthood begins.


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).
