    We were very blessed tonight to have our latest Bat Mitzvah condidate read from the Torah scroll for the first time with the trop (tune). She has worked very hard to learn Hebrew and to sing it from the Torah scroll with no vowels or punctuation. It is not an easy task. We were so proud of her!

    First time to read her portion from the Scroll.

    When will she have the Bat Mitzvah ceremony? I am not Jewish. Does the ceremony take place at age 13?

    How old is the Torah she is reading from?

    Congratulations on your daughter becoming a woman.

    Her Bat Mitzvah will be Adar 16, 5772 (March 10, 2012) For girls the ceremony is at age 12.

    The Torah scroll is about 75 years old.

    And, she isn't our daughter, my husband is a Rabbi, she is the daughter of one of our congregants.

    Oh, I see. Somehow from your post I was thinking you had one daughter go through the ceremony and this was preparing for the ceremony.

    Now I understand.

    I am glad I do not have to learn to read or sing it in Hebrew. That seems like a difficult thing to do for someone who has never spoken Hebrew.
