I have observed a few cultures that throw a party, calling upon their relatives and close friends for lunch or dinner to acknowledge when their daughter has reached puberty.

While I have read that back in the day, this was signal to look for potential daughter in laws, given that nowadays most girls tend to marry only after college, are such displays and rituals still relevant?

Also are the girls not made uncomfortable knowing their body changes are being inexplicitly announced among their cousins?

If Islam allows this, why do we not have a similar ritual for the boys similar to the Jews?

  • Yes, more like Bnei mitzvah for both boys and girls.
