    Hello everybody,
    In a school annual report I am translating, one of the subjects is as mentioned in the title.
    How would you translate it ?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Probably Bar Mitzvah boys, unless the context dictates something else.

    Thanks origumi but there is no context. As I said, this is the heading of a school subject with marks & comments only.

    So you should take my proposal, this is how Hebrew speakers would understand the title. See for example this site: http://www.bneimitzva.co.il. Regarding boys - the term may also refer to boys & girls.

    Thanks for the site. I am not religious, but I wonder if every parent appreciate the girls in very light attire ;)
