You’re attending a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.

You found the young man or woman a nice Bar Mitzvah gift (or Bat Mitzvah) for their special day… Now the only question remains:

“What do you write in their Bar/Bat Mitzvah card?”

After all, you want to let them know how much they mean to you (and who this awesome gift is from).

There are endless Bar/Bat Mitzvah card messages you can go with…

Want to write a warm & emotional blessing? How about a passage from the Talmud? Or maybe a blessing from Yoda (no, this isn’t a typo)?

Enough teasing… let’s go have a look at a few cool examples like these (and more)…

Note: And yes, I’m giving you full permission to use, copy or share these blessings as you please!

Tip: If you don’t have time to personalize the card yourself, then you can get this cute Bar/Bat Mitzvah card instead.
