In which month is it impossible to become Bas Mitzva?


It is impossible to become Bas Mitzva in Adar Rishon. If a girl is born in a year where there is only 1 Adar then her Bas Mitzva in a year where there are 2 Adars would be in Adar Sheini. If a girl is born in Adar Rishon - 12 years later would always have only 1 Adar, thus you can never have a Bas Mitzva in Adar Rishon.

    That last point isn't correct; it is most certainly possible to have leap years 13 years apart. Indeed, one of my own children was born in Adar I of the year 5763, and will be (bez"h) bar mitzvah in Adar I of 5776 - both of these are leap years. (Your answer would be correct if the question was about a bas mitzvah, because indeed it never happens that there are leap years twelve years apart.) – Alex Jan 30 '11 at 4:31
