Joining the ranks of the bar mitzvah'ed

27 March 2008

Hi.  I'm Nathan.  I am 13 but I have only gone through a bar mitzvah in a spiritual sense not the physical ceremony. The reason why is because I didn't know Hebrew very well when I turned 13.  My father asked if I wanted to do my bar mitzvah ceremony when I was 13 or 14 and I chose to do it when I was 14 so I could learn Hebrew for one more year. The reason why I am writing this is because my father wants me to become more of an adult and share my thoughts with other people. This requires that I organize my thoughts more like an adult which helps me mature and grow out of childish ways.  [I definitely look forward to more. -Ed/Dad]
