Spring is the season for First Holy Communions and Confirmations. But throughout the year, Jewish Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies and celebrations occur. Usually, children ages 12 or 13 for girls, the Bat Mitzvahs, and age 13 for boys, the Bar Mitzvahs are the celebrants.
But, an article in the online New York Times from March 22, 2009 details the Bat Mitzvah preparation and ceremonies of a much older group of Bat Mitzvahs. To be exact, the participants are in their nineties!
Check out this heartwarming story about “senior adults,” ninety year old plus Bat Mitzvahs, who never stop learning and creating goals for themselves. We’d certainly love to help with their Bat Mitzvah Invitations when they’re ready.
