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…
