Mitzvah Planning Timelines

Mitzvah Checklist

Though most of us know this already, it’s helpful to remind yourself and your child that the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is not the party afterwards but the religious duties he/she performs during the service. Here is a checklist to keep your family on track with the real elements of the big day.


No matter what kind of celebration you plan for your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah, there are many costs involved. We’ve provided a list of all of the potential costs. Check off those that pertain to your party and how much you want to budget for each. Planning ahead and keeping track of your expenses will help you develop a realistic picture of the total costs.


If it “takes a village to raise a child,” it can take at least that many people to plan that child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It’s a lot to take on alone, so seek out help. Besides, it truly is more fun when you involve others. This timeline should help you with your planning process and highlight how many villagers you may need to involve.
