Tallit for girls on their Bat Mitzvah

One of the most significant events in a Jewish girl’s life is when they celebrate their Bat Mitzvah at age 12.  It is significant that, in Jewish tradition, girls become adult before the boy who must wait another year for his Bar Mitzvah.

The celebration of the girls “coming of age” marks her transition from child to young woman.  It is an event in which she affirms her Jewish identity and declares that she is proud to be a Jew.  As befitting, this meaningful event is celebrated by the family and community.  It is a time of great pride and happiness and the Bat Mitzvah girl is usually showered with gifts.  Perhaps one of the most meaningful and significant gifts is a tallit for girls, presented to the new adult to reinforce her Jewish identify.

 

The Tallit for girls has great meaning and significance

The way in which the Bat Mitzvah is celebrated reflects the Bat Mitzvah’s relationship to Judaism.  If the celebration lacks meaning and spirituality, so, in all probability, will their “Jewishness”.  However, if the entire event is meaningful and inspiring, so Jewish identity and heritage will also be meaningful and inspiring. The giving of a tallit for girls to the young woman makes a statement that cannot be ignored.  It is a statement of belonging, of belief and proclaims to all that the wearer is proud to be Jewish and fully prepared to play her role as an important member of the community.  Whenever she wraps herself in the tallit, she is reminded that she is part of a tradition stretching back over 6000 years and that she has her part to play in preserving those traditions for the next generation.

 

The tallit symbolizes faith

Each tallit is unique, hand painted and sewn by artists and craftspeople dedicated to ensuring that every tallit for girls is perfect in every way.  They realize the significance of the tallit in Judaism and for the wearer. By wrapping ourselves in the tallit, we confirm our identity, strengthen our spirituality and become closer to God.
