Bnei Mitzvah Program

Sunflower Bakery offers a great program for boys and girls preparing to become a bar or bat mitzvah.

The Sunflower Seeds program enables young teens to contribute to our community and help improve the lives of young adults with learning differences.

We believe in the Jewish concept of Tikkun Olam, improving the world, and the Sunflower Seeds Bnei Mitzvah Program is a wonderful opportunity to put this value into action. Teens must be celebrating their Bar or Bat Mitzvah in the current school year of program participation.
