Bar-Mitzvah Certificate as Evidence

By Aimee Guggenheimer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), October 1914

The author explains the problem for Jewish children in proving their age to obtain work permits, when so many of them never had or do not have access to their records of birth. A possible solution is the use of a standardized bar-mitzvah certificate, which has been developed through cooperation between the Maryland government and Jewish social workers, a document in both Yiddish and English that is now being distributed to synagogues. The adoption of this certificate in conjunction with careful record keeping could prove an adequate response to the problem.
