Friday Group

Friday Group 

B’nei Mitzvah students will start to attend Friday Group 9-10 academic months before the date of their Bar / Bat Mitzvah

At FRS, our B’nei Mitzvah students learn in a dynamic and exciting peer-led programme called Friday Group. They meet weekly one-on-one with their helper (a young person who has recently been through the process themselves) and learn the prayers, blessings and Torah readings which they will read on their Bar Mitzvah / Bat Mitzvah, also giving them the skills to lead services in the future.

Friday Group starts at 5.10pm

After the Helper/Pupil pairs have finished their work at 6.25pm, their parent/carer/s are encouraged to join them and together attend Kabbalat Shabbat, the Friday evening service, at 6.30pm.

Current arrangements (from January 2021)

Friday Group remains online until Government guidelines allow otherwise.  The specific Zoom ID is emailed to the families concerned. 

Leyning Course

Approximately three months before the date of their Bar/Bat Mitzvah, pupils join our Director of Music, Mich Sampson, for a five-week leyning course, during which they learn how to chant their portion.  The leyning course takes place on a Tuesday afternoon.
