3 Tips For Throwing A Bar Mitzvah To Remember

At your son's bar mitzvah, you have to ensure that people from various age groups and backgrounds have fun. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you want your son to remember for years to come. If you are in the process of planning a bar mitzvah, here are some tips you can use.  

Hire a DJ

Even though it might be tempting to rely on a friend or family member to provide the musical entertainment at the bar mitzvah, you need a professional. The DJ is more than just the person who spins the tunes, since he or she can help keep the party going and unite everyone in helping your son celebrate.  

The DJ can also be instrumental in helping to plan the event. Every aspect, from the musical playlist to the timing for games and activities, should be discussed with your DJ. Although you might want someone from the Jewish faith to DJ, it is not necessary. You want an entertainer and as long as he or she is willing to become familiar with traditions and terminology that is used, you can choose anyone from any faith.

Incorporate Technology

Chances are, your son and his friends use technology on a daily basis. Now is a great time to merge his or her daily life with the celebration. There are a number of ways you can include tech in the bar mitzvah.  

One way is to opt for streaming services. If there are friends and family who cannot attend, they can watch online. Many synagogues allow online streaming.  

You can even set up a photo sharing gallery that everyone who attends can have access to. Each guest can upload pictures so that you and your family do not miss out on any moments. They can even share the images to social networking accounts.  

Think Outside the Box for Giveaways

Giving out gifts to friends and family for attending the bar mitzvah is part of the experience, but you want your son's gifts to stand out. Chances are your friends and family already have a collection of t-shirts and such from other bar mitzvahs, so you need to choose something that will make an impression and not be one more thing tossed in the box with other gifts.  

You do not have to break the bank to find nice gifts. Simple gifts, such as personalized picture frames with a picture from a photo booth, can be a great remembrance of your son's special day.
