In modern Jewish practice, Jewish girls come of age at 12 or 13. When a girl comes of age, she is officially a Bat Mitzvah (\'daughter of the commandments\'). The term is commonly used as a short-hand for the Bat Mitzvah\'s coming-of-age ceremony and/or celebration. The male equivalent is "Bar Mitzvah." Spiritual leader and teacher. Typically, but not always, leads a congregation. A fall harvest holiday where wooden booths are built to commemorate the Israelite wandering in the desert and to recall our fragility and dependence on God.
