The Jewish rite of passage into adulthood is more than simply a ritual – the bar mitzvah is a celebration of a new beginning in the life of a young man as he reaches 13 and is an experience and a delight shared with family and his peer group. The focus is of course on the bar mitzvah party.
Why a party? The Jewish Talmud states that it’s a mitzvah – a commandment – for a father to host a festive meal on the occasion of his son’s bar mitzvah.
Planning the event
If you’re planning a bar mitzvah party there are many entertainment options you could consider, depending on your budget. Firstly, you have to decide whether the celebrations are going to be held at home or if you’re going to hire a venue. If the latter, it’s usually best to go for a place close to the synagogue.
You’re going to have a diverse bunch of ages, but as it’s a teen’s celebrations, there’s got to be an accent on young attraction in terms of the music available and other activities to make the event a success. But, you still need a balance of entertainment for the different ages of your guests, because, the younger ones aside, it will be a mixed age party. You don’t want the kids bored but at the same time you don’t want to send the older ones running for cover away from some loud heavy metal band.
Experienced bar mitzvah band
An experienced bar mitzvah party band can provide the required blend of music and entertainment for your celebration. They should be competent in performing a large selection of traditional Israeli music for dancing and testimonials from previous Yiddish clients confirming that are well-versed in the formalities of Jewish events.
For a fun and exciting evening with songs to keep the younger generation entertained, a versatile bar mitzvah party band is a must. They’ll maintain a balance in their repertoire to ensure both adult members of the family, your friends and the youngsters also will enjoy themselves.
Band will work closely with you
A versatile bar mitzvah band will perform not only Jewish music but songs from the 1950’s right through to today’s chart hits. They’ll work closely with you from the time of booking right up to the event itself in order to ensure that they provide you with an appropriate combination of live music and entertainment that you and your guests will really enjoy.
Some of the other party feature options you could consider besides a bar mitzvah band include:
- A talented and versatile DJ to work in with and complement the band
- The DJ he can entertain the younger set perhaps with some dance games and competitions while the adults have a drinks reception hour
- An arts and crafts area to amuse the younger children during the party
- You can hire a face painter/body artist for the kids and even the adults at your party.
- A photographer running a photo station, with guests being able to go home with framed photo of themselves at the bar mitzvah
- Music video booth with karaoke to send kids home with their own DVDs of them performing
- Chocolate fountain – always very popular with young and adults alike
- Games systems with projection screens around the room for multiplayer fun
