What has impressed me about the Bar Mitzvahs and Jewish adulthood is the
rising idea that any gifts are given to charity. This is how we insure
our future. Secondly, many young Jews have a tikun olam project involved
with the Bar Mitzvah experience. Finally it's a weird experience but
many gentile friends of the Bar or Bat Mitzvahs are asking their parents
for a similar experience. What can I say? this is all part of the new
Jewish golden age.
“New Jewish golden age” ?!? What are you talking about???
Would that age also be vulgar like this ostentatious display?? One that
is devoid of values, spirituality?? As for “Tikud Olam”
(meaning : “correcting of the world”) His parents &
evidentally some of us too who are in need of correction, urgently so!!
