Ostroh, c.1715: Rabbi Yosef Landau of Klimontów, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah.

It is interesting to note, an unusual guest who participated in his celebration – his newly-wed wife! R’ Yosef, married the daughter of the rav of Ostroh – Rabbi Betzalel Katz, several months earlier, being only 12 years of age. His wife surely joined in his Bar Mitzvah celebration.

Does this post raise some questions, I suggest you see the source…
