comment Kamtza bar Kamtza
As @Lee noted, this question is very unclear without an indication of what story it refers to. I'm closing it as a temporary measure; please edit it so that more people can understand it and provide good answers, and then it can be reopened.

comment What happens at an Orthodox Bat Mitzvah?
Re "a kerchief (as she lights Shabbat candles)": most girls do not light until they marry or live alone. (Lubavitchers as a group are a notable exception, but they start before bas miztva age.) And I've never heard of an unmarried girl/woman covering her hair to light.

comment What happens at an Orthodox Bat Mitzvah?
This answer doesn't match my impression, which is that (among the crowd asked about) the only males in attendance at a bas mitzva celebration are (step-) ancestors and brothers of the bas mitzva (and only for part of it, so the girls can sing/dance with no men around). The comment above, "Generally, 'black hat' crowds, don't want the girl to give a 'formal' D'var Torah", also doesn't match my impression. But I haven't been to any (I'm male), so can't say for sure.

comment Why mention God, our god, for the chatas/asham and not for the ola/sh'lamim/toda?
@user6591 I take religion far more seriously than grammar, and your implying I don't is insulting. I do not think capitalizing "god" when referring to a god is a matter that my religion has anything to say about.

@user6591 Thanks for letting me know. IMO I don't need to follow suit in this post.

"OR your mother was Jewish": you might wish to specify when she would have had to be.

@DoubleAA True, but I haven't seen anyone say "Hamakom..." in the afternoon, either, AFAIR.
