In Deuteronomy 6, Moshe (Moses) tells Israel, “These words, which I am commanding you today, are to be on your heart. 7 You are to teach them diligently to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.” Providing a strong spiritual foundation is essential in Messianic life.
Traditionally, every Jewish child will complete their primary Jewish education after long years of study by making Aliyah to the Torah at age 13. Becoming a son/daughter of the commandment (Torah) is a culmination of the Jewish education that a child has received from birth to age 13 and prepares them for deeper educational from 13 to end of life.
If your child is interested in becoming a bar/bat mitzvah at Baruch Hashem, they are required to participate in our Children’s B’nei Mitzvah Program and fulfill all the requirements for a bar/bat mitzvah candidate.
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” – Genesis 2:24

Death & Mourning
All lifecycle events cease in this life with death. As believers in Yeshua Messiah we have the assurance that our absence in the flesh means our presence with the L-RD. For those remembering the life of a loved one who has passed, there is the Mourner’s Kaddish that is recited after burial has taken place and then annually (this is called Yharzeit).
Dealing with the death of a loved one is a difficult time for all. In Judaism, it is traditional to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish. The Mourner’s Kaddish is not a prayer for the dead. Rather, it is a prayer for the living. It is a reminder, in a time of grief, of the greatness of
G-d. As the community prays together, it serves to encourage the mourner that they are not alone and gives opportunity for all present to publicly affirm their faith in the Master of the universe.
BHS Mourner’s Kaddish Policy
- If a BHS member needs to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish for an immediate family member (parent/grandparent, child, sibling, or spouse), please contact the office after the burial to schedule it. All other requests including Yahrzeits will be done on the first Shabbat of every month. Please submit your request to the BHS office by noon on the Wednesday preceding the first Shabbat of the month.
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one and would like more information about the Mourner’s Kaddish or Yahrzeit, please contact us!
