November 14, 2009



I am so intrigued with your planning process for Steph's Bat Mitzvah. I have never been to a Bat or Bar Mitzvah, have never known anybody who had one or planned one, and honestly have no clue what all they entail. It's fascinating — a combination of tradition, religion, and culture. But what sticks in my mind is how special of an event it must be for the child. It's really a celebration of emerging into womanhood or manhood, am I right? Is Steph excited as all get-out about this coming up? (It DOES sound expensive — I imagine there are some families that just can't afford it...) When will Pete have his? Are boys a little older when they have their Bar Mitzvah? (I'm thinking because they mature later). Sorry I'm so green and probably asking silly questions, but I just really enjoy learning and living a little vicariously. It sounds like this is going to be just wonderful for Steph!


P.S. I've left an award for you on my blog!


Karen, I love to read this stuff about your Bat Mitzvah planning- my oldest son is in 4th grade so we'll get our date next year and start planning I suppose. It blows my mind that I'm at that point in my life. If you don't mind me asking- if you had to guess, what would you estimate as the low and (realistic) high range in terms of cost for the whole event? 10K? 15K? More?
