From Our Editors

The perfect book for a boy preparing for his own ceremony, or for anyone, Jewish or not, who would like to learn about this moving and joyous tradition. Kimmel provides historical background, explanations of ceremonial objects and rituals, and real-life bar mitzvah stories--funny, dramatic, and poignant--many of which are told in the participants' own voice.
