Journey to 13, UJEB’s unique Bar Mitzvah program, is aimed at curating a coming-of-age experience which is contemporary and meaningful for participants. This 6-month journey provides a creative and alternative option for marking this important Jewish life milestone.

The program focuses on four main themes: community, culture, well-being and rites of passage. It also includes visits from inspiring community figures and organisations, and culminates in a ceremony designed by the boys themselves.

This program can either stand alone, or complement a more traditional synagogue Bar Mitzvah. There are two intakes per year, starting in February and July. The total cost of the program is $550 ($50 non-refundable enrolment fee + $500 program fee).

The program is open to all, and is suitable for students at non-Jewish schools. Affiliation with a synagogue is not required.

The UJEB Bar Mitzvah experience enables participants to take their place in our community as passionate and engaged young men.
