Grade 6: Responsibilities of a Bar/Bat Mitzvah (Watch and Respond)

Prior to the break, we began discussing the meaning behind reaching the milestone of Bar/Bat Mitzvah. We will spend the next month focusing on the responsibilities that one has once reaching the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah. In class, we often emphasize that everyone practices Judaism in their own unique way. When discussing traditions and practices within our class, we celebrate the idea that Judaism may look and feel differently in every household.


Take a look at the video below and comment your thoughts:

How does your Jewish community embrace the needs of others? In what way could it improve?

  1. I think that our Jewish community could donate to people with disabilities. We should also do thing that include everyone. Get/buy things that everyone can use.

  2. 1. every place should have wheelchairs if people cant get or afford them.

    2. brail should be put everywhere and every place

  3. Hi I think that it is really cool that you didn’t give up and I think people should make more brail Torahs and books.

  4. My sister, Talia, was the first girl ever in my synagogue to have a Bat Mitzvah.She thought that it was sexist and unfair that only boys could have their Bar Mitzvah in the synagogue. Last year, in Tefilah for the middle school, there were two sections. One for the unorthodox, where everyone could sing, and one for the orthodox, where only the boys could sing. I found that highly unfair and unjust.

  5. The Ottawa Jewish community has many organizations that give the poor the most to help them as much as possible.
    One of the organizations is The Ottawa Food Bank

  6. Making the desks adjustable to meet all the students needs would be a great way to improve our school. It would be very helpful to people with height complication.

  7. My Jewish community could help others by doing things for the old age homes. My community could help some older people who need help.

  8. I can relate to this video because a Jewish community (school, synagogue, etc) can include people (both Jewish and not) just like in the video by lowering the table on the bima so a person in a wheelchair or someone with dwarfism can so over the top of the table.
