Bar/Bat Mitzvah Invitation Wording: Unique Samples + Examples (2019)

What’s the recipe for the “perfect” Bar/Bat Mitzvah?

Unfortunately, the answer is a little more complicated than “Add two cups of sugar, 2 tomatoes, a pinch of pepper and bake till golden brown” (what the hell am I baking?!)…

And I’m sure as hell won’t bother answering it in an article about Bar/Bat Mitzvah invitation wording… that’s a topic that can fill an entire book.

But one thing is for sure: no matter what you do – you can’t celebrate your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah without guests.

And unlike your neighborhood Pizza shop – you’re not just inviting any guests… you’re inviting friends, family and loved ones…

So with all due respect to Luigi and his delicious Kosher Pizza – the last thing you want to do is invite your guests with a generic Bar/Bat Mitzvah invitation that looks (and sounds) like those Pizza advertising flyers you end up throwing in the trash (sorry Luigi).

No…

You want your guests to look forward to your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah… 

How do you do that?

  1. Choose a beautiful Bar Mitzvah invitation design (or Bat Mitzvah invitation if it’s for your girl’s Bat Mitzvah) that matches the party theme.
  2. Write the invitation text. That’s exactly what you’ll do today (you don’t have to reinvent the wheel – just copy the examples in this guide)!
  3. Send em’ out

Easy-peasy, right?

OK, enough babbling… let’s go draft (and craft) a beautiful invitation!

Imagine your daughter waking up one morning 10 years from now.

She’s 22-23… (you’re 10 years older with a few white hairs starting to pop out).

Now, ask yourself: When she looks back at her Bat Mitzvah…what does she remember?

  1. “Meh. Just another birthday party. I barely remember anything”
  2. “OMG! That was the best night of my life! Thank you, mommy & daddy!”

Want her memories to look more like option #2 than #1?

Then you need to make sure she has a blast with her friends & family – the people who love her the most.

But first, you need to invite those people in the first place!

(Shocking, right?)

That means… (ready for it?)

At what point during the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony do the tissues come out (emotional tears, not sad tears)?

Believe it or not – it’s often during the Bar/Bat Mitzvah candle lighting ceremony.

But for that to happen – you need:

Believe me – you don’t want Justin Bieber playing when you invite your grandma to light a candle (just saying…).

You want a song that:

  1. They like (or at least don’t hate)
  2. Matches the personality of the person
  3. Is appropriate for the occasion (I don’t care how much you like Busta Rhymes. It ain’t gonna happen!)

Well, lucky for you – I’ve gathered the most popular candle lighting ceremony songs all into one place – so you don’t have to spend hours scouring the web trying to assemble a song list.

Remember: These are just recommendations… if you know what songs Grandma likes, what song makes auntie Bracha laugh (or cry), or what boy-band your cousin Rachel was addicted to as a teenager (Nick from Backstreet Boys! I Love You!) – choose them!
