Setting Date for the Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah
A Conservative Perspective by Rivka C. Berman

Plan ahead. Synagogues don’t want to be looked upon as bar mitzvah factories, where kids come to celebrate their big day and never return again. Many have instituted a multi-year education requirement as a prerequisite for a bar or bat mitzvah in their sanctuary.

Some synagogues are so popular that they begin setting bar mitzvah dates two or three years in advance. To avoid battles for “good” dates in other congregations, bat mitzvah times are randomly assigned. Doubling up for the popular Saturday morning Shabbat service is not unusual either. Give your synagogue a call now.

Though in the United States the celebration of the Bar and Bat Mitzvah are scheduled based on the secular calendar, you may want to glimpse at a Jewish calendar, and take that date into consideration as well. You can get hold of the Jewish birth date by clicking Jewish Agency's Jewish Birthday Finder . Please note that if your child is born in Adar of a non-leap year and will be celebrating a bar or bat mitzvah during a leap year, then set the date in Adar II. (For example, a 5th of Adar birthday is celebrated on the 5th of Adar II during a leap year.)
