Bar and Bat Mitzvah Trips to Israel: Variations on a Theme of Affirmation

By Lisa D. Grant

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2000

This article examines the motivation for and the impact of family trips to Israel during the year the child becomes bar or bat-mitzvah. First, it situates this phenomenon in the broad context of American Jewish life as a new variation on an old ritual; second, it describes how different families and different kinds of trips enact the ritual itself and how the bar/bat-mitzvah fits within the overall structure of their Israel trips.
