The families of our Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrants have several options as members of our congregation.  The culture in our shul is to have your B'nai Mitzvah on a Saturday morning.  Being that we are dually affiliated and dually+ represented in our congregation, means that our families have the option to have a Conservative OR Reform Bar/Bat Mitzvah on Saturday morning. Friday night is also available as an option and this past year we honored the request of a family to hold a Saturday afternoon service.
