Halocho #278 - When the younger becomes Bat Mitzva first

12 years ago - 5757 - was a leap year on the Jewish calendar; the month of Adar was doubled. This year is not a leap year. Girls born 12 years ago in both Adar-I and Adar-II become Bat Mitzva on the same date this year in Adar. For example, a girl born 12 years ago on the 28th Adar-I will become Bat Mitzva in 4 weeks time, four weeks after her friend who was born 3 days later than her - on 1 Adar-II - who became Bat Mitzva today.
