What is a 83 B Mitzvah?
It is a second Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah at 83 Years Young. While a second wedding to renew wedding vows is common, most people don’t even think of a second Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah at 83. It could even be the first for some.
In the Psalms, King David made mention of the lifespan of that time, which was up to the age of 70. 71 and older was considered as starting over during that time. The math is simple: 70 + 13 = 83. So 83 is the perfect age to become Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah all over again.
Celebrating the Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, whether it is the first or second time, with the recitation of the Torah in this time honored tradition is a wonderful way to celebrate a full life. What an impression it will have on the grandchildren and great-grandchildren! They will learn that it is never too late for something so important and special.
