Bar-Bat Mitzvah

“Bar/Bat Mitzvah” translates literally as "son/daughter of the commandment."

A boy attains his religious maturity and becomes responsible to

fulfill all Torah commandments (mitzvot) at the age of 13.

A girl becomes equally responsible one year earlier, at the age of 12.
This occasion is cause for great celebration and gratitude to G‑d,

and hence the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony.

One becomes Bar/Bat Mitzvah automatically on one's

twelfth or thirteenth birthday, with or without a party!

This can be a daunting ordeal or a joyful, memorable and meaningful experience.

Chabad of Patchogue can help to prepare for the transition

to Jewish adulthood in a relaxed and friendly way.

We assist in making this time meaningful and inspiring,

o your child's Jewish identity will be reinforced

and he/she will be proud of his/her heritage.
