Just a trivia tidbit:
I also had read the Nextbook essay re. bar-mitzvahs, and was reminded of an incident. Some years ago I interviewed a well-known Jewish pianist/singer for Lifestyles magazine. Being that it's a Jewish magazine, the celebrity profile had to touch upon Jewish topics. So among other things, said celebrity and I talked about his memories of synagogue and Hebrew school -- he truly was left with negative impressions unfortunately, so it all worked part and parcel to his attitude re. an upcoming bar mitzvah for him. His argument to his parents was that Buddy, the Morey Amsterdam character on the Dick Van Dyke Show was an adult when he had a bar mitzvah, so he, too, didn't have to have one when he turned thirteen -- he could have one at any point in life.
When I interviewed the celebrity, he was already about 36 or 37...and still had not been bar-mitzvahed. I guess he truly wanted to be like the Buddy character on the TV show of his childhood!
