How To Throw A Memorable Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Learn how to throw a memorable ceremony and party.

One of the most important days in Jewish tradition is a bar mitzvah for a boy and a bat mitzvah for a girl.  The ceremony symbolizes a 13-year old’s transition into adulthood and is a special moment for their parents.  If you are planning the traditional ceremony for your child, you will have to be knowledgeable about the planning process.  Luckily, there are a few simple aspects when it comes to throwing a memorable bar/bat mitzvah.

Book The Venue

When it comes to booking the venue for your child’s bar/bat mitzvah, you need to decide the specific time of the event.  Evening times are popular so you if you want to have an evening ceremony and party, you need to book in advance.  You also need to decide if you want to have the party at the synagogue or you want to have it a separate location.  If you are booking two separate venues, you need to plan how you are going to get from one place to the other.


One of the most essential aspects of any bar/bat mitzvah is the meal and drinks you will serve to your guests.  It is always wise to have a separate meal designated to your child and their friends because children are known to be pickier than adults.  Make sure to have a wide range of options for your adult guests that include meat and vegetarian.  This goes without saying, but make sure that the whole menu is kosher.


When choosing a theme, it all comes down to your child’s interests and how they want to decorate their party.  Your child can choose any theme they want whether it is sports or a specific movie.  The ceremony and party are all about your child, so let them have input in how they want their party to look like.  Once the theme is chosen, decorating the room and planning activities will be simple.
