Alternative Bar Mitzvahs in the San Francisco Bay Area and Beyond

Celebrate your Child's Coming of Age Outside of the Box

If you're reading this, then you're probably part of the largest Jewish group in the Bay Area: Jews who do not belong to a synagogue, who want to celebrate their children’s coming of age in ways that are meaningful to them, and who want to do that together with their Jewish and non-Jewish family and friends. From private tutoring and family preparation, to musical MC’ing of uniquely designed events––Next Jewish Thing provides everything you need to celebrate your child’s first steps into adulthood in a way that fits with your life, your values and your style.
