BJPS B’nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary
With Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin
Sunday, May 7 | 5:00 p.m.
For too many Jewish young people, their bar/bat mitzvah is the beginning of the end of their Jewish journeys. When students perceive the Torah as incomprehensible or irrelevant, many form the false impression that Judaism has nothing to say to them.
Enter the game-changer: the JPS B’nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary shows teens in their own language how Torah addresses the issues in their world. The conversational tone is inviting and dignified, concise and substantial, direct and informative. Jewish learning—for young people and adults—will never be the same. Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin serves as the senior rabbi of Temple Solel in Hollywood, Florida.
Community Partners: Orloff Central Agency for Jewish Education; Temple Solel
