My husband is jewish and I am not. We have two boys. Each one of them had a bris. I had no disagreement with that and was happy to celebrate. However, the boys are being raised as Christians. They go to church with me and actively participate in the church including Sunday School. My oldest is ten years old and my husband tells him that he must be bar-mitzvah. I completely disagree and find it completely dishonest to have him participate in such a custom that he doesn’t know nor has he been raised in. Can a child be bar-mitzvah in this kind of situation. I find this problematic and confusing to my son. I would really like your perspective.
