  • A baby girl is born!
  • Bat Mitzvah (cont.)
  • The naming of a Jewish daughter is a most profound spiritual moment. The naming ceremony is linked to the public reading of the Torah. The baby naming is traditionally followed by a "kiddush" in honor of the baby girl, a baby shower.
  • Marriage
  • At the age of 12, females are obligated to observe the commandments. The bat mitzvah ceremony formally and publicly marks the assumption of that obligation, along with the right for the girl to take part in leading religious services, to count in a minyan, to form binding contracts, to testify before religious courts and to marry.
  • Marriage (cont.)
  • the religious service is followed by a reception
  • It is customary for the bride and groom not to see each other for a week preceding the wedding.  Traditionally, the day before the wedding, both the bride and the groom fast.
  • The ceremony itself lasts 20-30 minutes, and consists of the kiddushin and the nisuin. The groom smashes a glass with his right foot, to symbolize the destruction of the Temple.
