So what exactly do we call this ritual? Bat Mitzvah, or “daughter of the commandment,” is for girls, while Bar Mitzvah, or “son of the commandment,” is for boys. B’nai Mitzvah, or “children of the commandment” and BMitzvah can be used for groups of people (e.g. twins), trans and gender-nonconforming tweens, or anyone looking for a more gender-inclusive option. No matter what you call it, the importance and excitement are the same!
