Come with us on what will surely be an interesting journey. We're preparing for our daughter to become a Bat Mitzvah! We suppose that means we should be planning a party too! It's hard to know where to even begin. Our family is quite small, and being assigned the first date among her friends has its advantages and disadvantages. Who knows what kind of a celebration she'll want two years from now?! A family luncheon and a night time kids' party? A traditional celebration? Hotel or restaurant? Fancy or casual? Kosher or not? Candle lighting? Kippot? It's overwhelming for sure. We're hoping to stay somewhat calm and put together a meaningful celebration that doesn't break the bank!
