Bar and Bat MitzvahsBook - 2012
The celebration of a bar or bat mitzvah is a recognition that a young Jewish boy or girl has reached the age of responsibility. At the age of 13 for boys and 12 for girls, children take lessons to prepare for the ritual ceremony of reading from the Torah, the Jewish holy book. Readers will learn about the different ways boys and girls are prepared, as well as the traditional family celebrations that go along with the religious celebration.
