A
BAR/BAT MITZVAH
Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a monumental milestone in a Jewish person’s life. It is
a time of excitement, anticipation, and sometimes fear and apprehension.
A boy is Bar Mitzvah when he reaches his thirteenth birthday, while girls are Bat
Mitzvah when they are twelve, corresponding to her earlier maturation.
Historically, Bar/Bat Mitzvah is the ceremonial occasion that marks the time when a
young person is recognized as an adult in the Jewish community and is responsible
for performing mitzvot. For example, before children have their Bar/Bat Mitzvah, they do not need
to fast on Yom Kippur. However after Bar/Bat Mitzvah, they are required to fulfill this mitzvah.
For a boy, among his many new responsibilities, beginning from his Bar Mitzvah day and onward,
he wraps Tefillin every day of the week besides Shabbat and certain holidays. Boys are also counted
in the minyan, a quorum of ten required to conduct a service in orthodox temples and girls are
counted for a minyon in egalitarian synagogues.
The Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony consists of the young person chanting the blessings, and the Torah
portion of the week. One also reads the Haftarah portion. While the actual day is important and
memorable, the years of preparation before are just as enlightening and vital.
