In the long history of Judaism, the bat 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 bat 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 bat mitzvah on a budget. There are many ways to do this. Some ideas are simple, like opting for a Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon bat mitzvah instead of a Saturday evening bat mitzvah party. You can also keep the price of the bat 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 bat mitzvahs on a budget since 2001. These intimate bat mitzvah ceremonies are followed by a smaller, dignified celebration. More guests can be included and even participate in the bat mitzvah by using Zoom video technology.
If you’re interested in a bat mitzvah on a budget, please contact Rabbi Jason Miller, The Mitzvah Rabbi. Moses didn’t have a $100,000 bat mitzvah event and you don’t have to either!
Rabbi Jason Miller can recommend affordable bat mitzvah vendors also, including a bat mitzvah photographer, bat mitzvah videographer, caterer, DJ and decor. Rabbi Jason can even recommend a bat mitzvah invitation creator.
