Bar/Bat Mitzvahs with Party Specialists
The Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah ceremony in the Jewish faith is a celebration of a thirteen-year-old boy or girl becoming a man or woman. Bar mitzvah is the Hebrew phrase meaning “son of the commandment” and bat mitzvah means “daughter of the commandment.” Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah means that a boy or girl has become an adult and is fully responsible for his or her morals and religious duties. It also means that he or she has become a full-fledged member of the Jewish community and must follow the rules of Jewish life the commandments. This is one of the most memorable events in the life of a special young person and their family. Because of the significance of this type of event, you do not want to place your faith in just any Disc Jockey entertainer.

Homotzi (Blessing over Bread)
Bread, has a unique Berachah, shared with no other food. The Berachah for bread is “Baruch Atah Hashem…Homotzi Lechem Min Ha’aretz,” meaning, “Blessed are You Hashem, who brings forth bread from the earth. The Hebrew word means ‘bring out’ or ‘draw out’. It is a shorthand way of referring to the blessing recited over bread at the beginning of a meal.
Kiddish (Blessing over Wine)
A kiddish cup is filled to the rim with kosher wine or grape juice, and the blessing over the wine is recited. This blessing is called Kiddush, which means sanctification. Wine, which is a substance that can be drunk in excess, is poured into a silver cup, blessed, and thus sanctified. There is no speaking between blessing the wine and drinking it, as Judaism teaches that all blessings should be followed immediately by partaking pleasure in the gift that was blessed.
Candle Lighting (Blessing and Ceremony)
One candle is added to the menorah for each person. Candles should be added from right to left. During a Bar and Bat Mitzvah a candle lighting ceremony takes place where 12 or 13 candles are lit to honor the chosen guests and family members. You will be able to dedicate a small snippet of a song for each of the candles for the invited friend or relative when they join in at the candle lighting.
