We at B’nai Horin feel the service is the important part of a B’nai Mitzvah, but many people put equal or greater energy into planning the party and other surrounding events. Your affairs will reflect your style, creativity and budget. We urge you to focus your energy and enthusiasm into the service.
Planning and having a Bar/Bat Mitzvah can be very stressful for parents (and occasionally for kids). Lynda Levy, MA (Rabbi Stan’s wife) is a therapist who can be quite helpful. She can be reached at 310.207.9829.
