Hosting a Virtual Bar Mitzvah

Hosting a Virtual Bar Mitzvah

0 Comment




If you’ve decided to host a hybrid bar mitzvah or hybrid bat mitzvah with both on-site and virtual components, here are some tips to ensure the day goes smoothly and all your guests have a great time.

Test equipment/video before the event.
Taking the time to test any computers, audio/video components, or live streaming equipment can help you work out any bugs before the big day. Hiring an A/V expert to provide a dedicated day-of tech support team and recommendations is a good idea — and well worth the investment to make sure everything is working properly.

Incorporate traditional mitzvah events
Bar Mitzvah traditions, such as bar mitzvah speeches, bar mitzvah montage, and the candle-lighting ceremony, can easily be translated into a hybrid model. With live streaming and Zoom capabilities (plus a bit of rehearsal and planning beforehand), your guests can participate in the traditional bar mitzvah events regardless of their physical location.

Include interactive entertainment
Incorporating interactive entertainment ensures that both your in-person and virtual guests can enjoy the festivities equally. Curated music playlists sent to your guests, virtual photo booths and video messages, and interactive games and performances can be integrated for an unforgettable experience.

Work with experienced mitzvah vendors
From contacting vendors to setting up the tech, to ensuring guests are engaged regardless of location, planning a hybrid mitzvah can feel overwhelming. A team of trusted bar mitzvah vendors can help with planning, coordinating, and executing your vision for the day.

There are some great A/V (audio visual) companies out there that will help facilitate every step of the process, allowing you and your family to enjoy an amazing mitzvah without the stress of planning. Rabbi Jason is able to work with you to ensure your virtual (or hybrid) bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah is everything you’d hope it would be.
