The Importance Of The Siddur Party To The Bar & Bat Mitzvah

One of the least surprising, yet amusing things I experience as a rabbi is when I encounter a young person approaching bar/bat mitzvah and ask them, “what is bar/bat mitzvah?” Yes – I'm sure you've already anticipated it. They almost invariably say, “that is when I become a man/woman”. This answer is almost standard irrespective of whether the child attends a Jewish day school or not.
