Bat/Bar Mitzvas in a Jewish leap year (Halacha a day)

This year is a Jewish leap year; the 12th month (starting on Shabbat) will be Adar-I (“Adar-Alef” or “Adar-Rishon”) and the 13th month will be Adar-II (“Adar-Bet” or “Adar-Sheni”).

Girls and boys born in Adar (12 and 13 years ago) do not become Bat/Bar Mitzva until Adar II.

Girls born in either Adar-I or Adar-II this year will become Bat Mitzva in Adar, in 12 years time.

In 13 years time will again be a leap year, so boys born in either Adar-I or Adar-II this year will be Bar Mitzva on their “real” birthday.
