A Bit About Bar Mitzvah

When a Jewish boy enters the age of 13 years, he automatically becomes a Bar Mitzvah where “Bar” literally means “Son” in Aramaic and “Mitzvah” means “Commandment” in both Hebrew and Aramaic. By following the Jewish ancient rituals boys become Bar Mitzvah or a Son of the Commandments.

From that date, he can participate in synagogue services, and other spiritual activities and has all the necessary rights and obligations of a Jewish adult.

It’s not just a joyful occasion but also an important milestone for the parents and families traditionally celebrated at a synagogue or other venues per the family’s preferences.

Furthermore, both the Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies allow the Jewish boy and Jewish girl respectively to decide how they would like to practice and follow the path of Judaism.
