Fourteen men, many of them fathers of sons who had celebrated their Bar Mitzvah, are being prepared here for their own “Bar Mitzvah” by taking special instruction at the Jewish Center and at the nearby Fair Lawn Jewish Center, it was reported this week.
The classes here are being conducted by Rabbi Solomon Rothstein, of the local Center, and Cantor Emil Hager. At Fair Lawn, the instruction is being given by Rabbi Simon Glustrom, Cantor Max Rubin and one of the teachers at the Center’s religious school, Mrs. Walter Weiss. In both cases, the men are being taught elementary Hebrew, Jewish history, tradition and customs. At both centers, special adult “Bar Mitzvah” services will be conducted for the graduates of the courses next spring.
