The girl’s Bat Mitzvah is around the corner.

And you’re about to be a part of it…

Yippee! How exciting!

But before you hop on the dance floor and do the chair-dance (spoiler alert), you first need to get the girl a sparkling Bat Mitzvah gift.

A gift that shines… something that will light her up like a Menorah the moment she sees it for the first time.

And what better way to do that than with a unique Bat Mitzvah Jewelry gift?

After all – we all know that Jewish Jewelry gifts are THE best present you can get for a Bat Mitzvah girl on her big day. It’s the ultimate blend of beauty and meaning – which is exactly what the Bat Mitzvah ceremony is all about. 

But what kind Jewelry gift should you get her? The million dollar question…

Should you get her a Star of David necklace? Maybe a Hamsa bracelet? How about a Shema Yisrael ring? Perhaps Roman Glass earrings?

Ahhhh! Too many choices!

No wonder people get overwhelmed…

That’s exactly why I spent hours writing this comprehensive Bat Mitzvah Jewelry gift guide…

To help you:

  • … Escape the same cliché gifts everyone else gets 
  • … Avoid getting her Jewelry she’ll never wear (or worse – ones she’ll only wear when you’re around to not hurt your feelings)
  • … Choose the best Jewelry gift the girl will absolutely LOVE (without spending hours (or days) browsing through endless Jewelry pieces that all look the same)

Ready?

Follow the bling…

In this guide – not only will you learn how to decorate a Sukkah… but you’ll also discover the best Sukkah decorations that’ll convince your friends & family to flock over to your Sukkah (and not run off to your neighbor’s Sukkah instead).

How to Choose the RIGHT Bar Mitzvah Suit for a 13-Year-Old Boy (2019)

Your boy is about to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah… how exciting!

“Let’s raise a toast… L’chayim!”

Hold it there, chief! That’s not what the Torah means by “turning into an adult”. So please keep your boy away from the liquor cabinet for the next 8 years (or 5, depends where you live), m’kay?

What it does mean is that your boy is now subject to the Jewish commandments: he wears a Tallit, he puts on Tefillin every morning, he can participate in a Minyan… just like any Jewish man.

So what if your boy is still “in development”? So what if his voice is squeaky? So what if his facial hair is still nowhere to be found (that’ll come in due time, don’t worry)…

As far as the Torah is considered – your boy is now considered a Bar Mitzvah – which means he’s eligible to all of the rights and responsibilities as an adult… because he is an adult.

And as an adult – now’s the time to start dressing like one… now’s the time to get your boy a beautiful Bar Mitzvah suit – a suit that transforms a sweet “little boy” into a handsome young man!

But getting a suit isn’t the same as getting the right suit. Many parents wonder:

  • What suit should I get?
  • When should I get it?
  • How do I avoid a suit that’ll rip a hole in my wallet?

All fine questions… How about some answers?

Let’s go get em’!

20+ Fun Bar/Bat Mitzvah Entertainment Ideas, Party Activities & Games (2019)

Look at these shy tweens… standing there on the sidelines with their phones, instead of gettin’ Jiggy with it on the dancefloor.

But hey… can you blame them?

  1. They’re growing up in a social media world. Who needs the “real” world?
  2. Most Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties, to put it lightly, aren’t all that entertaining (read: most of them are BORING)

And when you put those two things together – don’t be surprised if kids are more interested in taking selfies, posting them on Instagram and comparing who’s got more likes.

Bottom line – this isn’t the 90’s anymore. Kids have smartphones – and they’re not afraid to use it.

There’s no point in denying it: if you want your guests to actually have fun at your kid’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah party – you’ll have to raise the bar (pun not intended).

And that’s exactly where these Bar & Bat Mitzvah party activities come into play… Read More…
