Conservative Synagogue to Host Speaker

Author Mark Oppenheimer will speak about the Bar and Bat Mitzvah across America during a session on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at the Conservative Synagogue.

Since its emergence here a century ago, the Bar or Bat Mitzvah has become a distinctively American rite of passage, and Oppenheimer examines the rite of American Jews today in his book “Thirteen and a Day.”

“Thirteen and a Day” is not just about the Bar and Bat Mitzvah—it is also the story of the author’s own growing attachment to the faith of his ancestors. Oppenheimer will share his experiences and observations and answer questions.

Parents are encouraged to attend with their pre- or post- B’nai Mitzvah age children, and Oppenheimer will be available for book signing at the conclusion of the evening. There is no charge for this lecture, and refreshments will be served.  Please call the synagogue for more information at (203) 454-4673.
