Question
Shalom Rav, Rav I have one question what is right to have Bar Mitzvah? is it after completing 13years of age or do we need to wait 2 extra days after turning 13? warm regards
Answer
ב"ה Shalom (Namaste) The Code of Jewish law, the Shulchan Aruch (55:9) states that a child is considered Bar- Mitzvah when he becomes 13 and one day, which simply means that on his actual birthdate he is considered Bar- Mitzvah. Of course, this follows the Hebrew birthday. All the best
