The Bat/Bar Mitzvah candlelighting is not only a celebration of the child’s 12/13 birthday. It is also a party for the parents! Traditionally, before the age of BM, all the child’s responsibility to follow Jewish law and tradition lies with the parents. After this age, the children bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition and ethics. So, the parents have as well a good reason to celebrate, don’t they?
