The Bar Mitzvah Ritual

Bar Mitzvah is a ritual that commemorates the coming of the age of a Jewish boy (13 years old). After this ritual, the boy then becomes a bar mitzvah and henceforth is responsible for all his actions. The father offers his gratitude to the Supreme Almighty for relieving him from the accountability of the sins ever to be committed by the boy then onwards.  After the boy steps into his thirteenth birthday, the event is organized on the first Shabbat (seventh day of the week). All the Jews around the world celebrate this event with utter sincerity. Undoubtedly, the site of the celebration chosen and the Bar Mitzvah Tallit selected always play a crucial role in making the ceremony memorable.
