New Mitzvah Organzier
Mitzvah Market Magazine: Bar Bat Mitzvah Family Fashion

By Bari Cener

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a Jewish rite of passage celebrated by the entire family, and that means attire for the day extends past the guest of honor. Each and every family has its own style, and the clothing should reflect it. While the Bat Mitzvah dress or Bar Mitzvah button-down is the star of the fashion show, parents and siblings deserve to shine in their own special clothes.

This year, we highlight the dresses, suits, shoes, and accessories worn by our Bar or Bat Mitzvah families. Some toasted the occasion in gowns and glitz, while others chose to stay casual with denim and football jerseys. Whatever the dress code, these families looked stunning while celebrating their Bar or Bat Mitzvah!
