About this title


The celebration of a bar or bat mitzvah is a recognition that a young Jewish boy or girl has reached the age of responsibility. At the age of 13 for boys and 12 for girls, children take lessons to prepare for the ritual ceremony of reading from the Torah, the Jewish holy book. Readers will learn about the different ways boys and girls are prepared, as well as the traditional family celebrations that go along with the religious celebration.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-It seems that little care has been given to the research, editing, or design of this book. The information is so basic as to be more confusing than informative, and very little of it is focused on the actual practice of bar or bat mitzvah. The awkward writing and errors in grammar and punctuation are reminiscent of a child's school report. The text is printed in an oversize font that implies an audience of beginning readers, but the subject matter is of more interest to preteens. The "Did you know?" pullouts include strangely random statements such as "Coming-of-age ceremonies have been practiced for thousands of years in many cultures. Some ancient traditions involved surviving in the wild." The stock photography is bland, often unattractive, and, in at least one instance, incorrectly captioned. Skip this offering and go with Bert Metter's longer but much more satisfactory Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah: The Ceremony, the Party, and How the Day Came to Be (Clarion, 2007).-Heidi Estrin, Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FLα(c) Copyright 2011.
