The bar/bat mitzvah is one of the most important for the parents of Jewish boys and girls. As a result, it has become one of the essential celebrations in recent years. If there is a bar/bat mitzvah coming up, there are a few considerations that should be at your fingertips.

Pick the Date

Before you can make any bar/bat mitzvah plans, you will need to know, among other things, the actual scheduled date of it in the synagogue. Everything will revolve around this one date.

Depending on the congregation size, the date assigned may go as far as three years in advance. But in normal circumstances, this date is as close as birthday.

Decide on the Party Venue and Entertainment

A lot depends on the crowd size and the location of the party. What size crowd do you intend to have, and where do you want to hold the party? Afternoon or evening?

Will the party be only for kids, or you’ll include other ages? Will the menu be kosher or non-kosher?

Choosing a great setting such as Villa Ragusa saves on decorations, and the events manager is always at your disposal to help with your plans. And most importantly, if you’re going kosher for the event, Villa Ragusa allows you to use your own caterer. Please contact our staff for more information.

Typically, entertainment theme depends on various factors, such as your budget and audience. Ideally, choose a good balance to accommodate different age groups. You can hire a disc jockey to entertain the kids during the cocktail hour for the rest of the crowd.

Food and Beverages

The typical food and beverage options that you can discuss with the caterer include passed hors d’oeuvres, carving station with roast turkey or beef and the kids-targeted hors d’oeuvres such as hummus with chips or mini-tacos.

Do you plan on having separate menus for adults and kids?

For the main reception and cocktail party, decide on an all-cash bar or partial open bar. Villa Ragusa has great bar options where kids can also get smoothies and soft drinks.
