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 (CLaL 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, 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.

  • 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.

  • How to collect Nitzotzot:  At services and communical events, you will need to scan the Nitzotzot QR code or click this link. Registers will be taken at organised sessions such as CLaLs, Yr 6 outings, etc. 

Here's a simple table so you can see at a glance an example of how your child's Nitzotzot could be earned:

CLaL Sessions & Community Events  22
Kabbalat Shabbat services @FRS 40
Shabbat Shacharit services @FRS 35
Mitzvah Project 18 (possible 18)
Ulpan  5 (possible 5)
