Bar Mitzvah, Etymology: Hebrew miswAh
Oldest date of this word: 1650
* a commandment of the Jewish law
* a meritorious or charitable act

When I was in Yahoo Chat I asked these questions in a "Jewish" chat room. Of course you can go to web pages or Yahoo chat and get the same information. This is just a quick peek.

"Jew": what type of question is that? My sons and my brother were all a bar mitzvah???


Me: hmm I did not know girls did it, how long does one take
girls are a bat mitzvah


Me: I have never seen one take place on tv what kind of presents do you take
"Jew": any gift appropriate for any 13 year old,,, you do not have to bring a gift


Me: I guess you can take pictures
"Jew": and no, they normally have professional photographers, you may not take your own in a synagogue


Me: Is it a long event
study is long, yes
I guess one guy said it took about 6 months to prepare, what could they do but study?
It takes years, not only 6 months
Did you have some kind of books to study
there are many books
"Jew": and you have to learn to read Hebrew from the torah, very difficult



Function: noun plural but sometimes singular in construction
Etymology: Late Hebrew tephIlIn, from Aramaic, attachments
Date: 1613
The phylacteries worn by Jews
Price range I saw on the internet $350.00 to $1100.00 ( It looks like a Mexican vest made so lose strings hang out )

From the Internet : The mitzvah of Tefillin given 4 (
Ex. 13:9, Ex.13:16, Deut. 6:8, Deut. 11:18). These verses are written on the skin of a kosher animal.

The scribed skins are bound, wrapped in a certain method and placed in leather box to be worn on the forehead. The same four paragraphs are contained in each bayit (singular for batim) ... It continues for another paragraph.

All of the details of the Tefillin was given to Moses on Mount Sinai.

Except on the Sabbath and Yom tov, Tefillin are worn during morning prayers. Wearing kosher Tefillin will bring you closer to God.

From a "Jew" web site
A young man who can take care of tefilin should be given one by his father.
Tefilin has a
special rules a child must keep himself very clean and can not pass gas while he is wearing them. ( The links about farting are at the bottom of this page )
For Jewish people, these rituals are called bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah. Bar mitzvah is the Hebrew phrase meaning "
son of the commandment," and bat mitzvah means "daughter of the commandment."
Contrary to what many believe, the bar mitzvah ceremony did not originate from the Bible. It grew out of the need for boys to celebrate their coming of age,
The fact that no Israelites ever took part in this concoction. These "Jewish traditions" are not from any native people of the bible / middle east. They are concoctions of Europeans pretending to be descendants of the Israelites.

They say they get all of the information about the Bar mitzvah
from these 4 bible verses:
EXODUS 13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with you, neither shall there be leaven seen with you in all thy quarters.
EXODUS 13:8 And you shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the Lord did to me when I came forth out of Egypt.
EXODUS 13:9 And it shall be for a sign to you upon yours hand, and for a memorial between yours eyes, that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the Lord brought you out of Egypt.
EXODUS 13:10 You shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.
EXODUS 13:11 And it shall be when the Lord shall bring you into the land of the Canaanites, as he sware to you and to thy fathers, and shall give it you,
EXODUS 13:12 That you shalt set apart to the Lord all that openeth the matrix, and every firstling that comes of a beast which you hast; the males shall be the Lord's.
EXODUS 13:13 And every firstling of an ass you shalt redeem with a lamb; and if you wilt not redeem it, then you shalt break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt you redeem.
EXODUS 13:14 And it shall be when thy son asketh you in time to come, saying, What is this? that you shalt say to him, By strength of hand the Lord brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
EXODUS 13:15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
EXODUS 13:16 And it shall be for a token upon yours hand, and for frontlets between yours eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of Egypt.

DEUTERONOMY 6:6 And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in yours heart:
DEUTERONOMY 6:7 And you shalt teach them diligently to thy children, and shalt talk of them when you sittest in yours house, and when you walkest by the way, and when you liest down, and when you risest up.
DEUTERONOMY 6:8 And you shalt bind them for a sign upon yours hand, and they shall be as frontlets between yours eyes.
DEUTERONOMY 6:9 And you shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

DEUTERONOMY 11:15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that you mayest eat and be full.
DEUTERONOMY 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and you turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
DEUTERONOMY 11:17 And then the Lord's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest you perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you.
DEUTERONOMY 11:18 Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
DEUTERONOMY 11:19 And you shall teach them your children, speaking of them when you sittest in yours house, and when you walkest by the way, when you liest down, and when you risest up.
DEUTERONOMY 11:20 And you shalt write them upon the door posts of yours house, and upon thy gates:

I have highlighted the references in green that they say they get this information from. Read the whole ball of wax about what they call bar mitzvah, then see how much of it is in these verses.
If they say this is in their Talmud, then go to the mishna / Talmud link to verify the Talmud is a concoction. You do not need to do that because they say they are getting this information about the bar mitzvah from the Torah ( that is your old testament )
Have you ever looked at one of those puzzles and found the goofy stuff that does not belong there? Begin to look at all these claims and find all of their concoctions that are no where in the scriptures.
A Rabbi is one who teaches the things written in the Torah. A blabbi is one who concocts their own bs and makes goofy Lemmings believe it is out of the Torah.
