How to Throw a Great Bat Mitzvah Party for Your Daughter

So your little girl is just about to turn 12 or 13 years old. According to Judaism, she is becoming a woman, and it is a time for a really huge celebration. It is a really exciting time for her, and you of course.


  1. 1
    Book the Bat Mitzvah ceremony with your Synagogue. The rabbi will see to it that she has her Bat Mitzvah lessons.
  2. 2
    If the synagogue has a big hall for celebrations, perhaps you would like to have the Bat Mitzvah party there.
  3. 3
    If you choose to celebrate the Bat Mitzvah elsewhere, make a list of places which do theme parties, such as restaurants, banquet halls, hotels, etc, in your area. Narrow down the selection to whichever one your daughter would love to celebrate her big day at.
  4. 4
    Make a list of family and friends whom you would like to attend your daughter's Bat Mitzvah. If she has a boyfriend, be sure to include him on the list!
  5. 5
    Ask your daughter if there is anything particular she would like to receive for a Bat Mitzvah present.
  6. 6
    Decide what type of food you would like to have served at your daughter's Bat Mitzvah party.


  • Some families like to take their daughters to Jerusalem, Israel for their Bat Mitzvah.


  • Beware of any food allergies which people may have. The dishes you may like to have served at the celebration may contain ingredients that your invited people will be allergic to.
