O knihe

In Judaism, a Bar Mitzvah is a boy, and a Bat Mitzvah a girl, who has gone through what is in some respects a Jewish coming-of-age ceremony. The terms also commonly refer to the ceremony itself, which normally takes place when the child has turned 13. There is a common misconception that the Bar Mitzvah ceremony causes a change in status from youth to adulthood. The rights and responsibilities vest solely because of age; the Bar Mitzvah ceremony is typically an ordinary Sabbath service, in which the boy or girl participates for the first time as an adult. According to Jewish law, when Jewish children reach the age of majority they become responsible for their actions, and "become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah". In many Conservative and Reform synagogues, girls celebrate their Bat Mitzvahs at age 13, along with boys. This also coincides with physical puberty. Prior to this, the child's parents hold the responsibility for the child's adherence to Jewish law and tradition and, after this age, children bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics and are privileged to participate in all areas of Jewish community life.
