You’re attending a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.
“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.

The Funny Blessing (for Kicks & Giggles)
Congratulations on your Bar Mitzvah!
I still remember when you were just a young 12-year-old like it was yesterday.
Even though you’re officially a man now – stay the hell away from the alcohol! You’re not that kind of “man” yet.
Speaking of which: now that you’re officially all grown up, can I have your toys?
Mazel tov! I wish you all the love, happiness and success in the world…
Jewish Yoda’s Blessing
Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.
Still wonderful you are, and more wonderful you shall become.
As you grow up, you will know the good from the bad when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.
But PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE, my young padawan…
Difficult to see. Always In motion is the future… But yours is a bright one.
May the force be with you!
The Poem Blessing
A handmade blessing, written especially for you.
Praying you will find happiness & success in everything you do.
You’re now celebrating your coming of age,
With the Torah alongside you as you go on stage.
We love you so much & wish you all the best,
So excited to celebrate with you as your guest.
There are many ways to write a Bar/Bat Mitzvah blessing, and a ton of Bar Mitzvah card messages to choose from.
You don’t necessarily have to go the “normal” (boring) way. You can spice it up a bit, add a bit of good old Jewish wisdom or even write a short poem.
Bottom line – anything can work. Be smart, be creative and be caring…
Most importantly: have a great time (and tell the young man/woman I said Mazel Tov).
