Tips For Catering A Bar/Bat Mitzvah


Follow these tips so everyone is fed well on your child’s big day.

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an important ceremony in the Jewish culture and celebrates a 13 year-old boy or girl going into adulthood.  This Jewish tradition takes place in a synagogue for the whole family and friends to enjoy.  The important factors to any Bar/Bat mitzvah are the caterer and the food that you choose to serve which has to be kosher of course.  There are several tips you should follow so everyone, from the adult to the children, enjoys the catered meal!

Budget, Budget, Budget

For any event to be successful, you need to decide on a budget and (hopefully) stick to it during the planning stage.  You don’t want to go outside your means because after all your child is only 13 and you most likely have college to pay for in the future.  The amount of food and the catering style will depend on how much you want to spend.  So before your child gets to pick any of their favorite foods, decide on a budget.

Stick With Stations

Kids are naturally restless especially at nice events, so allow for them to move around during a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.  Have food stations that serve your children’s favorite foods and allow them to get up and serve themselves.  The best options for food stations is to have kids make their own meals such as tacos bars or mac n cheese bar.  Make sure the food stations are fun and innovative, so the children are entertained while they eat.

Keep The Adults Happy

Yes,a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is primarily for children, but you want to keep all of the adults entertained as well.  So focus on having food options that adults will enjoy whether it be grilled chicken or salads.  If your budget allows, plan on having an open bar for the adults to enjoy while their children are on the dance floor.
