Changing Patterns of North American Bar Mitzvah Towards a History and Sociological Analysis

By Stuart Schoenfeld

Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association, December 1984

This paper moves bar mitzvah to the center of attention, examining the historical development of the concept and attendant ceremonies, interpreting it as a socio-cultural drama in which larger issues of Jewish life are articulated and somehow dealt with. As notes for social history, the paper identifies the main features of the ceremony's evolution.
