Can you Imagine a Bar/Bat Mitzvah that your child wants to participate in?
That’s the goal of the Alternative Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony!
There are other options for unaffiliated families who wish to celebrate their child’s becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. A Bar/Bat Mitzvah does not have to take place in a synagogue which may surprise many. It can take place anywhere that there is a minyan (10 Jewish adults) present for public prayer and public reading of the Torah. A synagogue is holy only as a place of worship, but not intrinsically so.
Preparation for a non-traditional Bar/Bat Mitzvah generally involves myself or a tutor closer geographically who comes to the families’ homes to work with the child or children. This is a convenient option for many families who find it difficult to transport their children to and from the synagogue two or three times per week. It also allows for greater scheduling flexibility wherein the tutor works with the student at a time that does not conflict with other activities and obligations.
While physical presence is ideal there are times that sessions over video chat (skype or google voice) is the best option. I have prepared children who live in other states and plan on coming to Las Vegas for the ceremony.
With many direct flights from nearly everywhere within the U.S. , and many affordable attractions for the whole family, Las Vegas is the ideal place to have a destination Bar/Bat mitzvah ceremony. Not to mention a fun place to have the party!
I have taught in and ran various traditional and non traditional Hebrew schools throughout the years. This experience has enabled me to create a program that is engaging, effective, meaningful and suitable for the whole family. So what are you waiting for?

Traditionally, spirituality refers to being more attached to religious values or the matters of the spirit instead of being materialistic or fond of worldly matters. However, spirituality has evolved over time and is considered a concept of reaching high levels of consciousness. If a person is spiritual it means s/he is connected to God, nature and the deepest parts of her/his own self.
A spiritual adviser is a person who helps in discovering the process of spirituality. They are trained individuals who provide guidance in one’s spiritual journey. They help in practicing the art of spirituality that balances human success and human expressions.
I will provide the drive and guidance you need to improve your career, relationships, and life.
In addition to the services mentioned above, Rabbi Shai is also available for:
Cantorial work and spiritual music concerts
Private or group classes about Torah, Kabbalah and Jewish history/values/holidays.
Motivational speaking for synagogues, churches and other organizations
Rabbi Shai enjoys working with individuals, families and groups. He is very involved with the unaffiliated, interfaith/blended families and the LGBT communities.
