In the long history of Judaism, the bar mitzvah ceremony is a relatively new concept. Your great-grandparents likely did not spend thousands of dollars on a party to celebrate their son’s bar mitzvah. However, in modern times, we have grown accustomed to large-scale celebrations to commemorate this Jewish life-cycle event.
Some families will choose to create a bar mitzvah on a budget. There are many ways to do this. Some ideas are simple, like opting for a Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon bar mitzvah instead of a Saturday evening bar mitzvah party. You can also keep the price of the bar mitzvah down by inviting fewer guests and keeping it an intimate affair to close family and only your best friends.
Rabbi Jason Miller, The Mitzvah Rabbi, has been helping families create bar mitzvahs on a budget since 2001. These intimate bar mitzvah ceremonies are followed by a smaller, dignified celebration. More guests can be included and even participate in the bar mitzvah by using Zoom video technology.
If you’re interested in a bar mitzvah on a budget, please contact Rabbi Jason Miller, The Mitzvah Rabbi. Moses didn’t have a $100,000 bar mitzvah event and you don’t have to either!
Rabbi Jason Miller can recommend affordable bar mitzvah vendors also, including a bar mitzvah photographer, bar mitzvah videographer, caterer, DJ and decor. Rabbi Jason can even recommend a bar mitzvah invitation creator.
