  • Bar Mitzvah
  • In The next stage of a boys life, they have a Bar Mitzvah at age 13 to celebrate their first aliyah which the father thanks God that the sons sins are no longer his own. This is followed by an elaborate ceremony.
  • Bar Mitzvah
  • Lets party!
  • Marriage
  • A woman is acquired (i.e., to be a wife) in three ways: through money, a contract, and sexual intercourse. Acquisition by money is normally satisfied by the wedding ring. Acquisition by money is normally satisfied by the wedding ring. 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.
  • Marriage
  • The minimum age for marriage under Jewish law is 13 for boys, 12 for girls. Marriage is vitally important in Judaism. Refraining from marriage is not considered holy, as it is in some other religions. On the contrary, it is considered unnatural. A man is permitted to marry more than one wife, but a woman cannot marry more than one man.
  • Divorce
  • Judaism has always accepted divorce as a fact of life, albeit an unfortunate one. Judaism generally maintains that it is better for a couple to divorce than to remain together in a state of constant bitterness and strife.
