Bar-Mitzvah

And

Bat-Mitzvah

Celebrations


When a boy reaches the age of 13 years and a girl the age of 12 years they become “Bar-Mitzvah” or Bat-Mitzvah”, the time when they have spiritually matured and become responsible for their own actions.


Bar-Mitzvah

A boy is now able to perform Mitzvot as can any adult male. He is also now able to PUT ON Tefillin and have an Aliyah to the Torah in Shul, which should be at the earliest opportunity i.e.: the first Shabbat, Monday or Thursday morning after his Hebrew 13th birthday, when the Torah is read in the Synagogue.


Our Rabbi will be able to advise on the purchase of a set of Tefillin and a Tallith.


It has now become a tradition within Anglo Jewry for a “Bar-Mitzvah” boy to sing the Haftarah and also Lein (read a Torah portion). The Synagogue Office has the names of tutors who could teach the boy his piece.


This is also a good reason to celebrate with a party or function to mark his transition to spiritual manhood, which may be a “Special” Kiddush after the Synagogue service and / or a celebratory Dinner / Party.


Bat-Mitzvah

It is quite common these days for the there to be a ceremony and celebration of a girl reaching her Bat-Nitzvah.


This is not as time specific as a Bar-Mitzvah and is usually during the year after her 12th birthday, often there will be a joint ceremony for the girls in that year.


Again, this is can be a good reason to celebrate with a party or function to mark his transition to spiritual womanhood.


Allerton Hebrew Congregation is an Orthodox Jewish Community and, therefore, have strict guidelines regarding life events such as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and the celebrations that are part of it, both in the lead up to the day, the day and party celebrations.


The Rabbi will always be happy to advise on Kosher Caterers, facilities, etc.
