When Jewish girls
turn twelve years old, they are considered to be “bnot mitzvah," or
“daughters of mitzvah." This means that when these young ladies turn
twelve years of age they celebrate not only being viewed by society as
an adult, but, most importantly, they celebrate their religious
accountability. According to Judaism, when a girl turns twelve she is
obligated in all the commandments incumbent upon Jewish women. This
means, for example, that she must fast on Yom Kippur, keep the Sabbath,
and separate a portion of the dough, or challah, and more. Bat
Mitzvah age is an exciting time both for the young lady as
well as her proud parents.

family and friends. Sometimes the girl will even give a dvar Torah, a
short Torah lesson. Celebrations can be grand and pricey or small,

appropriate bat mitzvah gift.

get old. Also remember that bat mitzvah girls, since they receive so
much jewelry on their special day, also need a great Jewelry Box.
