I had my Bar-Mitzvah when I was thirteen years old. In my speech, I talked about how the Jews worshiped and built the golden calf and how it is important to have faith in others and follow the rules accordingly.
I read from the Torah, my parsha was Ki Tisa which covers the story of the Jews building thre golden calf, and how god wanted to wipe out the people who helped build it.
My Bar-Mitzvah was very memorable. At a young age, you learn to study, critically think, prepare, and perform a big production. It truly is one of the first steps to growing up.
I had just turned 13 when I had my Bar Mitzvah. I talked about helping out others in the world specifically the homeless people. Yes, I read from the torah. My Parsha was Naso and the reading starts with a continuation of the Levite census and a discussion regarding their Tabernacle duties. The laws of the sotah woman and the Nazirite follow. The portion concludes with the Priestly Blessing and the offerings which the Tribal leaders brought in honor of the Tabernacle inauguration. Reflecting back I feel that this was a great experience and memorable part of my life. It was a great milestone and I was supported by my close family and friends.
The Hebrew name that was given to is Yarden. It was given to be at the time that I started Hebrew school at the age of 8. I choose this name because it was the Hebrew version of my english name Jordan.
