Bar Mitzvah Traditions Still Being Observed Today

Jewish parents continue to celebrate their child’s coming of age wherever they are in the world. This bar or bat mitzvah event is being held for girls aged 12 and boys aged 13 as they accept their adult and religious responsibilities. The celebration is an age old tradition of people following the Jewish religion but has spread among even the non-Jews today.

A bar mitzvah normally involves a religious service for the family and the Jewish congregation in which they belong and a social activity for the family, relatives and friends of the celebrant. It is during the Shabbat service when the boy celebrant is given an aliyah and the privilege to read passages from the Torah, recite the Haphtarah and Jewish blessing, make a short speech and lead certain parts of the service. A party is also thrown afterwards with a luncheon or dinner, a candle lighting ceremony, games and dancing especially for the young guests.
