The Bar or Bat Mitzvah is simply the age when a child is old enough to be responsible for his/her own actions and behavior in family life and in every aspect of their daily life. Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is not the attainment of maturities such as being able to marry, to earn a living, or bear children. Jewish teachings instruct us that the Bar Bat Mitzvah is very clear. It states at the age of 13 is the age to be counted, recognized, and take part in the obligations of the Jewish community. The community is not a set place as say, the temple. It is in the home, with family, with friends, a mitzvah as in a good deed, a celebration, being present, being kind to others, a helping hand, to name a few of many.

The Online Mitzvah Program is for families not affiliated with a temple congregation. It is designed to assist Mitzvah parents, Mitzvah moms, Mitzvah dads, and Mitzvah grandparents in honoring the custom. It is not replacing the social aspect a Jewish community and Temple Congregation offer; however, in these current times, it is serving a need.
