In Judaism a Bar Mitzvah is a Jewish boy who has turned 13 years old, and a Bat Mitzvah a Jewish girl 12 years old). Until the Bar Mitzvah the boy does not must to do the all Mitzvoth In this time the boy started to use Tfilin and can join to a Minyan. A lot type of ceremony like start to use the Tfilin near the Kotel, then the bar mitzvah boy reading the Torah the Parashah of this week Monday or Thursdays.
On Shabbat is the special ceremony reading the all Parashah and the Haphtarah during reading the Torah the reader (Bar mitzvah boy) use a Yad Torah Pointer to see easier the text in the Torah. My recommends is to use only Olive wood YAD Torah pointer.
The finger of the Yad is smoother. The olive wood is especially from Israel. On the Yad is engrave special text from the source of Judaism, like: "והגית בו יומם ולילה",
"עץ חיים היא למחזיקים בה", "זאת התורה אשר שם משה לפני בני ישראל" It's able to personalized the Yad Torah pointer with the name from the Bar Mitzvah boy and this Torah Pointer is a souvenir for all his life.
