Bar Mitzvah

Have you ever been to a Bar Mitzvah? About the closest I have been is seeing them in the movies. It was interesting to learn about Bar Mitzvah at my sponsors site? I always thought the term Bar Mitzvah actually referred to the celebration, but it literally means, "son of the commandment." At thirteen years old boy becomes a Bar Mitzvah. The celebration party itself is a fairly new tradition. Families send out Bar Mitzvah invitations and throw a reception. Though I am not Jewish, I like this celebration. A rite of passage into manhood. It something the Christian culture is lacking.
