Putting God on Your Guest List
by Rabbi Jeffrey K. SalkinParents and their children actuely feel the social pressures that surround bar and bat mitzva. But they want to feel the spiritual promise of the event, the pull of the divine, and the knowledge that they are participating in an event that has meaning both in the ancient past and in the very immediate present. They want to know that the steep incline before them is their family’s own version of Sinai, the summit where, in every generation, Jews meet God, individually and as people.
