How the event is organized?
Bar mitzvah organization greatly depends on the direction of Judaism and specific traditions. However, the general process of preparation and planning is always similar. Many parents prefer to hire a special company for the organization, as it will allow relieving them from a kind of pressure.
Bar mitzvah by the Kotel and its stages
Every Bar mitzvah starts with the preparation of a boy/girl for this important occasion. The children attend special schools and have lessons with a rabbi. It is better to start the preparations about 2 years before Bar mitzvah. The other planning usually takes about half a year.
The day starts with the official ceremony in a synagogue. Many Jews prefer organizing it by the Western Wall, which is the holiest place for the Jewish people all over the world. Here the hero of the occasion is to rise to the Torah and then to read definite paragraphs of it. To do it right, the kid attends a rabbi.
After the religious part, the Bar mitzvah boy/girl together with the relatives and guests can have a tour through Jerusalem. The final part of the occasion is the celebration. It is vital to choose a good restaurant with kosher foods and many opportunities. Kinor David is a company, which is ready to provide you with the best choice.
The organization of the celebration
It is very important to take care of the planning, as Bar mitzvah is an essential part of the life of every Jew. Thinking about the place of celebration (which is usually a restaurant), consider the following aspects:
- food quality (remember that the dishes must be kosher)
- distance from the place of the official part of the ceremony
- possibility to dance/take photos/prepare decorations in a certain style.
Remember that the cake is usually an integral part of the party.
