Bar and Bat Mitzva
Entering the adulthood phase occurs at Bar and Bat Mitzva. According to the “Holy Zohar” that is precisely the time when the “Yetzer Tov”, the positive characteristics of a person are given highlight and value. Preparations for one’s Bar and Bat Mitzva are thus essential as a means of building a platform in order to facilitate us to better do Mitzvot. Most of us will travel back in time and reminisce on their Bar\Bat mitzvah with the fondest of memories. This parallel wave of emotions refers us to the writing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in the Holy Zohar, commending us to allow our children the equivalent opportunity of preparation and educational achievements towards their spiritual aspects of life.
It takes between six to twelve months of once-a-week sessions to learn about and prepare for this momentous milestone.
