Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Mazal Tov!

Bar/Bat Mitzvah time has arrived at your family and things are beginning to change. At this point in the circle of life, Jewish tradition established the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony to mark this transition and imbue it with meaning.

Your child’s religious preparation and study is underway and they are busy preparing Biblical texts and learning about Jewish values and traditions that have been taught throughout the generations. They will be delivering a dvar Torah and/or taking part in a service that will reflect their new sense of responsibility and thoughtfulness.

You too will be delivering a speech focusing on your child’s achievements, supporting their growing maturity and instilling them with a sense of purpose and pride in their new status within the religion.

While looking forward to celebrating this occasion with friends and family, you are most probably overwhelmed with the many preparations. This is where we step in.

Our writers at yourjewishspeech.com are well-versed in Jewish texts and have extensive backgrounds in Jewish education. Over the years we have used our expertise to help Bar/Bat Mitzvah families write Dvar Torahs and parent speeches that reflect both shared Jewish teachings and personal family experiences.
