Bar or Bat Mitzvah
Girls at age 12 and boys at age 13 become bat or bar mitzvah according to religious tradition. From this point on, they may be called to read the Torah. For many Jewish families, the first time a child is called to the Torah for an Aliyah is an important milestone. OMJS’s new B’nai Mitzvah curriculum will help you provide your child with the background, the context, the identity and — most importantly — the desire to celebrate this Jewish rite of passage.
