Delicate Cases

Adoption and surrogacy are important factors in determining Jewish status. Your child's bar or bat mitzvah is a religious milestone and we can only perform this tradition with those who are halachically Jewish. The onus is on the applicants to disclose to Spiritgrow any circumstances that may affect the Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Where the applicants have failed to disclose such information, Spiritgrow has the right, at any time, to cancel the application. Matters of a delicate nature may be discussed in confidence with the Rabbi. The applicants agree to abide by Spiritgrow's code of conduct and if relevant, rulings on matters of religion as it relates to your families involvement. In cases of divorce, separation or variations in custody etc, both parents and (where applicable) guardians or other relevant persons must sign and are bound by the terms of the application.
