Bat Mitzvah Gifts

According to the Jewish tradition, the young Jewish girl celebrates bat mitzva at the age of twelve. The Hebrew phrase Bat Mitzvah literally means "daughter of commandment". Like Bar Mitzvah, at this coming of age event the 12 year-old girl becomes a responsible adult ready to observe God's commandments. The Jewish girl celebrates her womanhood a year earlier because it is believed that girls mature earlier than boys. This is the time when the girl's moral awareness and sensitivity to the outer world fully develop, enabling her to take on full responsibility for her actions.

What is Bat-Mitzvah?

Bat Mitzvah is a fairly modern ritual that started in the 20th century. It celebrates the moment when the young Jewish person is ready to play an active role in religious and social life. In most religious and secular Jewish communities, with the exclusion of Orthodox, it has become a common custom to honor the Bat Mitzvah girl by throwing a big party that includes a festive meal, music, guests and, of course, gifts. While the young girl doesn't read sections from the Torah or lead prayer services like the boy, it is expected that the girl makes a speech with references to religion and traditions. Today, more and more reform Jews celebrate bat mitzvah at the age of 13. Many people who are invited to a Bat Mitzvah celebration don't know what to expect and have no idea what gifts to give for the occasion.

The Bat Mitzvah is a big birthday party with social and religious significance. Any regular birthday gift will do like CDs, books or gift cards. Some prefer to give the celebrant savings bonds, usually given in multiples of 18. According to gimatria, the number 18 spells the word Chai (Life in Hebrew). However, there are many more unique and meaningful Bat Mitzvah gifts that have a connection to the Jewish tradition and heritage and send a thoughtful message from the giver. A wide selection of originally designed Jewish jewelry available here could be just the perfect Bat Mitzvah gift you are looking for. Star of David Jewelry are a great example. The Star of David is one of the most significant emblems in the Jewish tradition. To this day, it is thought to protect the ones who wear it around their neck.

The Hamsa hand is also believed to protect against the evil eye and bless the ones who wear it with luck and good fortune. There is a wide selection of Hamsa jewelry that incorporates the hamsa symbol. You can also find delicate Jewelry designs with Hebrew inscriptions such as Shema Yisrael pendants, the most famous Jewish prayer. Since the Jewish girls start to light the candles at the age of 12, Shabbat candlesticks or Hanukkah menorah would be other great and functional gifts. Since both celebrate the life of a young person, Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah gifts have a lot in common, from books and items of religious significance to shoes and tech gadgets. And if you're invited to a reform celebration, a Tallit is another option as well.
