How to Navigate Massuot

Massuot is a programme with a lot of choice built in. We know that this can be exciting and also that a lot of choice can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you navigate the process:

  • Massuot has core times throughout the three years. These are built around Shabbat and are Friday evenings (Friday Group, Chavurah suppers and Kabbalat Shabbat Services), and Saturday mornings (CLL sessions and Shabbat Shacharit services). In year 6, outings are on a Sunday and the calendar is shared at the start of the year.

  • When activites are outside core times, e.g. Mitzvah project sessions and ulpanim, you are offered a choice of dates and options. 

  • Beyond these programmed times, how you collect nitzotzot is up to you and your family. You can attend community events, schemes, clubs, festivals and cultural activities. When you do your mitzvah project is also set around your existing commitments. We hope this means that our participants are able to keep doing the things they love, while getting used to the rhythm of community life.

  • By collecting Nitzotzot you are able to see how far you are progressing towards the date of your BM. At FRS having a B'nei Mitzvah isn't just about the big day, but about all the friendships, conversations and experiences that make up the journey. That's what your total shows, and that's why we care about it. 

  • The more you put in, the more you get out. We're looking forward to spending time with you and your family and accompanying your journey to B'nei Mitzvah.
