A bar mitzvah is an important milestone in a young man's life. It's a time of joy and celebration. When a young man is called to the Torah it is not only about the bar mitzvah gifts, he symbolically takes on the mitzvot. He also makes Mommy, Daddy, Bubbe and Zayde very proud! #kvelling

It is customary to recite a blessing or prayer in honor of the bat mitzvah girl. From the Talmud (Brachot 17A), this text is meaningful today as when it was written more than 2,000 years ago:
"May you live to see your world fulfilled, May you be our link to future worlds, and may your hope encompass all the generations to be. May your heart conceive with understanding, may your mouth speak wisdom and your tongue be stirred with sounds of joy. May your gaze be straight and sure, your eyes be lit with Torah's lamp, your face aglow with heaven's radiance, your lips expressing words of knowledge, and your inner self alive with righteousness. And may you always rush in eagerness to hear the words of One more ancient than all time."
