The History of the Bar Mitzvah

Branch: Sussex

by Rabbi Michael Hilton of Kol Chai Synagogue

Rabbi Hilton has recently published a book on the History of the Barmitzvah. This ceremony of bar mitzvah was first recorded in thirteenth-century France.  Rabbi Michael Hilton has sought out every reference to bar mitzvah in the Bible, the Talmud and numerous other Jewish texts spanning several centuries, extracting a fascinating miscellany of information, stories and commentary.
