Since the making of the Challah is an important part of the ceremonies, plan your recipe ahead of time and don’t forget to take pictures as the first time your daughter is breaking bread as a woman. You can find plenty of recipes online or perhaps you have one handed down for generations, either way, help your little girl to know how special she is and how important carrying tradition is to her personal connection.

Lighting the candles are another part of this time for young girls to know the significance of the mitzvah. Check YouTube for the proper method of lighting the candles if you’re unsure.

Prayer is an obvious part of the preparations. Since women were the first to teach prayer, it’s important to continue to carry out the religious aspects and what daily prayer can mean.

Volunteering your services isn’t only a great trait to teach our young girls today, it’s also good to set the tone of reminding our daughters how important they are. But, by reaching out to others in need, it provides the lesson of grace and love.

Giving a speech is a part of the mitzvah, and your daughter may have a hard time if she’s shy. Help her out by assuring her you were the same and gave her confidence to accomplish this task.

Gifts to give at a Bat Mitzvah can vary but most common would be money and religious gifts. Don’t forget the rule of 18 which is very popular. Beautiful candlesticks make wonderful and suitable gifts, but they often come from the parents or grandparents.

We’ve seen a real variety of foods served at these types of celebrations. Of course, it’s good to have cake and pastries but keep in mind the rest of the food should be kosher.

The party can include beautiful decorations, inflatable rentals and lots of cool grab bags to pass out to guests. This is the part where you can become creative, and your guests will love it. More importantly, your daughter will remember this celebration for years to come.
