How to Organise a Bar or Bat Mitzvah

Your child’s bar or bat mitzvah is probably something that they will have been thinking about for years. Seeing cousins celebrate theirs, friends’ older siblings, and of course hearing about it through the synagogue means that it will never be too far from their minds. After all, it is the first step on their journey into adulthood, so it’s understandably as important to them as it is to you. The parents however, are the ones that need to organise the celebrations, so it’s vital to have a list of important details on hand to help you plan.


Don’t Get Carried Away


Even if you are having a lavish party with 300 guests, it’s important that you don’t lose the meaning of the event. Your child’s bar/bat mitzvah classes are more important than what DJ you have. The same goes for their mitzvah project, and the charity that your child wants to support. It should be something that they really believe in, and it can even become a theme for the party itself. When they come of age, your child becomes a full member of the Jewish community, whether a bar/bat mitzvah is held or not, so it’s not about how much you can impress people. Make sure that you talk to your child about the section of the Torah they are to say and discuss their mitzvah project with them.


Pick a Date


You will likely know the date that the synagogue gives your child up to three years in advance, so you can preliminary book a venue with plenty of time to spare. When you have settled on a date, it’s important that you send save the dates out to everyone that is invited. This means that they can get it into their calendar early, and your date is less likely to clash with others. If someone else is thinking of the same date as you, there is always the option of changing plans to have a joint celebration with another child. This way, you can split the costs. After all, if the children are in the same friend group, they would be going to each other’s celebrations anyway.


Venue


The venue you choose can help you to really get all of your plans clear in your mind. Whether you are having a small intimate gathering, or a large celebration, a themed party, or a traditional feel, the venue can help all of this become a reality. If you’re based in the city, there is a whole variety of bar and bat mitzvah venues to hire in London. It’s recommended that you take your time and view a handful before making your decision on what one is right for you and your family. Many have their own caterers that can provide kosher and non-kosher food as well as a full children’s menu, which will be one more thing ticked off your list.


Consider a Party Planner


Some bar/bat mitzvah are likened to weddings when it comes to the detail of planning that goes into them. From a candle ceremony to catering, décor and entertainment, it’s a lot to do, and many families simply don’t have the time. Of course, you can scale back the celebrations, but if a big event is what you want, then a party planner might just save you a whole load of stress. Even for smaller parties, it is sometimes useful to have someone who is looking after it for you. Leaving you to make decisions on what you’d like, without having to contact any vendors or spend ages coordinating.


Theme


The theme for this celebration can really be anything but should reflect your child’s interests in order to make it special to them. Whether this is sports, a favourite TV show or movie or something like Hawaiian or Hollywood, make sure that you have an agreement from them. If they really don’t like your idea, then they’re not going to have a good time. It’s really important that you try and involve them in this process as much as you can, and the theme is one way that you can do that.


Have a Timeline


As with any big event, having a timeline for when everything is going to occur is essential. After all, you need to make room for a range of formalities, and if you are having horas or a candle ceremony, time needs to be made for this as well. Having a timeline will let everyone at the party know what is happening and when. It will be particularly useful for caterers and entertainers. If you have a particular time that the event needs to close at, make sure that all of the guests are aware of it and can arrange the appropriate transport home or to their hotel.


Entertainment


In your kids’ eyes, this might be one of the biggest factors to consider. Having a band or a DJ, or even just playing the music that they like, will mean that the dancefloor is never empty. Other ideas include a photobooth and a caricaturist to make sure that everyone is entertained the entire night. If there are also going to be a lot of younger children in attendance, ensuring that there is something for them is also essential, as it means that their parents can relax.


Your child’s bar/bat mitzvah is an event that they will remember forever, just as you will. It has so much significance in their lives, that it’s important that you try and get the balance right between spiritual meaning, and entertainment for your guests. So long as your child enjoy it and are involved in the planning to a degree, everything is sure to go smoothly, and they’ll be thanking you for organising it so well.
