JACOB'S FRIENDS

Welcome to Jacob's Bar Mitzvah website! We're really happy you'll be sharing his special day with us. A lot of you have probably never been to a Bar Mitzvah, so you may have tons of questions. There's more information throughout the website, but here's what you need to know in a nutshell!

click here FOR THE INFO

Q. What is a Bar Mitzvah and what exactly will I be doing there?
A. In the Jewish religion up until the age of 13, a child’s parents hold the responsibility for the child’s actions. Now that he is 13, Jacob will now be held accountable for his own actions to include those involving his family, his friends and the Jewish community here in Tampa.

So what happens at a Bar Mitzvah?

On Saturday morning, Jacob will lead the service, read from the Torah, and give a speech. Parts of the service will be in Hebrew and a large part in English as well. Jacob is looking forward to explaining the contents of this tradition that is thousands of years old. 

Q. What should I wear to the celebration on Saturday?
The attire for Jacob's Bar Mitzvah celebration on Saturday evening is party casual or wear your favorite team jersey, which is dressier than your everyday casual look, but you don't need a cocktail dress or suit either.

Boys can wear pants or khakis with a button down, but tie or jacket aren't necessary. Girls can wear cute dresses or a dressy pants look, but without all the frills. Or just wear your favorite team jersey & jeans!

Q. What will the party be like?
A. Lots of food, games, music, dancing...and a whole bunch of other fun stuff!
We have a DJ who will be entertaining everyone, especially all of you. After
all of Jacob's hard work, this is the time to relax and celebrate!

We'll see you January 19th!
