Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Themes From A To Z


One thing we might have wanted to consider 13 years ago, when naming our children, is the Bar or Bat Mitzvah theme! Not all themes need to revolve around your child’s name or initials, but some children luck out and have the perfect name or initials to work with their theme.

For many families, choosing a Bar or Bat Mitzvah theme isn’t an easy task. Having a theme isn’t necessary for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration, but it does tie all the party elements together.

We all want our children to be involved in the planning process, after all, it will be a celebration of their hard work in becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. But when you pose the question to your child, “What would you like your theme to be?” the most common response is usually the dreaded, “I don’t know.”

We hope by giving you some ideas, using almost every letter in the alphabet, we can help move the process along!
