What is this Jewish tradition called metzitzah b'peh? Is it practiced in Israel?

If you call me an antisemite I will block you.

    Bar Mitzvah (Hebrew: בר מצווה‎) and Bat Mitzvah (Hebrew: בת מצווה‎) are Jewish coming of age rituals. According to Jewish law, when Jewish children reach 13 years of age, they become responsible for their actions, and "become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, plural B'nai Mitzvah" (English: Son (Bar) or Daughter (Bat) of commandment, plural Children of commandment). In Orthodox communities, a Bat Mitzvah is celebrated when a girl reaches the age of 12. In addition to being considered responsible for their actions from a religious perspective, B'nai mitzvah may be counted towards a prayer quorum (Hebrew: Minyan) and may lead prayer and other religious services for the community. The age of B'nai Mitzvah was selected because it roughly coincides with physical puberty.[1] Prior to a child reaching Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the child's parents hold the responsibility for the child's adherence to Jewish law and tradition. After this age, children bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics and are privileged to participate in all areas of Jewish community life.[2] When used in English, the term also refers to the ceremony itself.

    The Bar Mitzvah ceremony involves the young man or woman being called to read the Torah, a Haftarah portion, or both at a Shabbat or other service (Thursday morning, Monday morning or a festival) when the Torah is read, and it may also involve giving a d'var Torah, a discussion of that week's Torah portion. In Orthodox congregations a Bat Mitzvah ceremony will not include the Bat Mitzvah girl leading religious services, as women are ineligible to lead communal religious services in the Orthodox tradition. Some progressive Orthodox congregations do allow women, including Bat Mitzvah girls, to read Torah or lead prayers at women-only prayer groups. Precisely what the Bar/Bat Mitzvah may do during the service varies in Judaism's different denominations and can also depend on the specific practices of various congregations.

    answer: No, it isn't. And you've asked this at least two other times and received answers. Having trouble comprehending?

    And why are you repeating the "question" on days when Jews aren't likely to be online? That typically occurs from bigots posting disgusting antiJewish rants and "questions" to cause hatred of Jews.

  • You're still an antisemite; and you can block me all you want to. You've asked this question several times already, and been given links to answer it. I can only presume that you're either too stupid to read them, or too stupid to understand them, or are, in fact, an antisemite.
