Bar/Bat Mitzvah Planning

JKHA school policy has been established to ensure that only one bar or bat mitzvah is scheduled for the same day and time frame per grade.

Once you have selected a date that works for you and does not conflict with another child in your child's grade,  please call Mrs. Bohbot at 1-862-437-8015 or email her at and she will double check the date for you and book the simcha if the date is indeed available.  

A family may reserve a Bar/Bat Mitzvah date for their child by booking the desired date with the school office no more than two years prior to the date. For example, a Bar/Bat Mitzvah to be held on January 6, 2018 can be booked no earlier than January 6, 2016. The guidelines for parties other then Shabbat Kiddush/lunch will be as follows:

The school calendar will allow for multiple parties for the same grade on the same day, if necessary, but only one party per grade will be allowed at any given time. Parents can reserve a slot in the morning (9-1), afternoon (1-5) or evening.

Preference will be given to the family that reserves first on the school calendar. Please call Mrs. Bohbot at 862-437-8015 or email her at to reserve the date for your son/daughter’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

Wishing you a Mazal Tov on this wonderful and exciting time in your family's life.
