A bar mitzvah is a religious initiation ceremony held for Jewish boys who attain the age of 13. Participants in a bar mitzvah ceremony are considered ready to observe Jewish religious customs and participate in public worship. The term bar mitzvah literally means “son of the mitzvah” and implies that a person who is 13 years or older is no longer a child and should observe Jewish religious law and customs. This includes wearing a kippah or yamaka. A bar mitzvah kippah is a special kind of kippah designed specifically for bar mitzvah celebrations.
Importance of the bar mitzvah celebration
Any Jewish boy who turns 13 years old is expected to strictly observe Jewish religious order with or without a bar mitzvah. However, since this is such an important occasion, it is best celebrated together with family and friends. For many hundreds of years, this celebration has been held in synagogues where 13 year old boys are welcomed to the world of adulthood. During the initiation process, the boys are introduced to the responsibilities and opportunities that come with the new status. Regular worship at the synagogue will be expected including wearing a yamaka or kippah.

According to Jewish custom, when a female turns 12 years of age (as opposed to 13 for a male), she becomes a Bat Mitzvah. Literally translated as 'Of Commandment Age', the term refers to the young girl reaching an age where she is required to follow Jewish law and customs responsible for her own actions. The occasion is a happy one, usually marked with a party for family and friends. There is also usually a celebration in the synagogue as well, with the Bat Mitzvah girl called up to the Torah in Conservative and Reform congregations.
Recently the trend has been that Bat Mitzvah parties (like Bar Mitzvahs) are becoming more and more extravagant, more like a weekend party than just a one night event. The family of the Bat Mitzvah girl will commonly order special custom kippahs for the family and/or friends to wear in commemoration of the celebration. These personalized kippahs usually have the logo of the event, or the name of the Bat Mitzva girl on them.
