Myth: A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an event.
Fact: A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a person.
Myth: You go through a specific ceremony and “become Bar/Bat Mitzvah’ed”.
Fact: Becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah marks that you have reached a certain emotional maturity. It develops at age of 12 for a girl and at 13 for a boy. It happens with or without a party, a rabbi or a ceremony. (An adult may celebrate his/her commitment to Torah at any age in life, and that has become loosely termed as an “adult Bar Mitzvah”.)
