No matter how sticky things can get, planning and preparing for a bar or bat mitzvah can be as sweet as raspberry rugelach. Think we’re full of kosher bologna? Think again! The Bar & Bat Mitzvah Guide is a fun, informative, and easy-to-read planning site and magazine for parents and kids embarking on this amazing experience.
Click through our pages for tips on planning, themes, mitzvah projects, hot ideas, and more — like a Q&A with Mayim Bialik of “The Big Bang Theory,” our bi-weekly humor column “Cantor Banter,” or have you kid read our “Torah Portion Tuesday,” feature in which the wise and funny Cantor Matt Axelrod, author of “Surviving Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah: The Ultimate Insider’s Guide” breaks down each week’s parsha in a fun way.
We also provide tons of listings for local vendors. We publish new articles every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and have an archive filled with tons of useful information — so get planning, already!
If you would like your kid’s bar or bat mitzvah featured on The Bar & Bat Mitzvah Guide, or if you would like to write for the publication, please email editor Elyse Wanshel at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Featured Family” or “New writer”.
