Sky Lanterns and Bar Mitzvahs

Bar Mitzvahs are an excititing time for young Jewish boys. What better way to help celebrate then with gorgeous sky lanterns? If you are organising the event for your son, you can order some sky lanterns for use at the reception. If you are attending the bar mitzvah as a guest, you can take along the sky lanterns as a gift for the young man and encourage the other guests to launch them at the end of the reception to celebrate the young man’s ceremony.

Imagine seeing those sky lanterns floating up into the sky along with the wishes for the young man’s future – it will truly be a sight to behold, not to mention a very special moment for the boy and his family.

Gifts are ordinarily given at the reception, not at the service itself and the nature of the gift varies significantly depending on the community. If you didn’t want to use sky lanterns there are many other gift options you could look into that don’t have to be religious. 

Jewish-themed gifts are not a bad idea, you could give a book that is a biography of a Jewish person that the celebrant might admire, alternatively you could always ask his parents what they think he would like, try to think of what 13 year boys would want for their birthday and work with that.
