WARNING: Multiple clicks through the above slide show may lead to tummy-grumbling, salivating, and an immediate need to unhinge one’s jaw, devour delicious Jewish dishes Garfield-style, and then washing down the feast with a Dr. Brown soda.

We see a lot of new food trends at b’nai mitzvahs today — mocktails, food competition, cupcake towers, popcorn machines, ice cream stations, candy buffets, food trucks, chocolate fountains, mini-grilled cheeses, min-hot dogs, mini-pies, even mini-sushi.

Modern culinary crazes are cool, but there are some delish Jewish dishes that can please everyone at your bar mitzvah — from non-Jewish guests and youngsters slurping up bubble tea to the borscht -loving old-timers.

Click through our mouth-watering slide show and discover traditional Jewish treats that if included in your menu will honor your Hebrew heritage while pleasing the masses.

But before you click, remember … you and your stomach have been warned.
