Top Bar Bat Mitzvah Candle Lighting Songs For Each Candle

A candle lighting ceremony at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is a tradition many families like to include.

They are fun, but deciding on the perfect song for each candle can be stressful. Most kids are up-to-date on current music, but us parents sometimes need more help!

They are a full-service event and entertainment company, offering the best DJ’s with top-of-the-line equipment, dynamic emcees and professional dancers. In addition to their basic entertainment packages, they also offer live musicians, interactive games, amazing and unique talent, photo novelties, lounge decor, lighting design and more.

We asked Dance Time Entertainment to give us the Top 5 songs for each candle in the candle lighting ceremony. We have them listed below with easy to click on links.
