Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah: The Ceremony, the Party, and How the Day Came to Be
Bert Metter (au); Joan Reilly (il)
Whose bat mitzvah was so controversial that even her own grandmothers were against it? Why do boys in parts of Africa cut their hair the night before their bar mitzvahs? Which movie star had his bar mitzvah party at a homeless shelter? The answers to these questions, and many more, can be found in this look at one of Judaismís most important and widely observed traditions. Includes the history and evolution of the bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah ceremonies to reflections from Jewish celebrities on their own coming of age celebrations, including: Olympic medalists Sarah Hughes and Mark Spitzer; Actor and comedian Ben Stiller; Magician David Coppperfield; Film star Jake Gyllenhaal; Actors Jami Gertz and Zoe Weizenbaum; and more!
