A boy becomes Bar Mitzvah on his 13th hebrew birthday. The sedra on which he can have his first call-up or Aliyah is determined by his date and time of birth. The Rabbi can confim the correct date with you.
For Both Bar / Bat Mitzvah
Both parents are able to join the Rabbi downstairs in front of the ark and bless their daughter / son with the traditional priestly blessing (which is customary for parents to do on Friday nights).
The Rabbi will say the Hebrew and the parents will say the English, Please discuss with the Rabbi for details.
