Zoom & Micro Mitzvahs

When we started our event planning business a few years back, we wanted a name for our new biz that conveyed to the Jewish community who we are and what we could bring to the table. Not your typical, same old mitzvahs, but mitzvahs with a fresh modern approach, using our creativity and love for party planning along with the most up-to-date techniques, ideas and vendors. We decided the name “Modern Mitzvahs” would be the perfect fit.

No doubt these last few months have been very hard on all of us. There have been so many of life’s special moments postponed or cancelled including Bar & Bat Mitzvahs. Whether you were planning a mitzvah in Israel or working with your local synagogue, moving forward as initially planned can be tough.

Feeling Overwhelmed With Mitzvah Planning?

Take These First Steps

Getting started planning your Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration can be quite overwhelming. So often we see busy parents who don’t know what to do or where to start and with our current situation you may be feeling limited as to what planning you can do. However, now is a great time to get the ball rolling. Here are a few ways you can get started without leaving your home.

 

Make your guest list

This is one of the most important steps of the process and our recommendation of where to start. The number of guests invited determines EVERYTHING about your event. Where you can host it. How much you’ll spend. How many ____ you’ll need. While your guest list will fluctuate over the next year, the number of guests is a good starting point to make sure you have a space that is the right size and can give solid estimates to all of your vendors.

Your child has worked so hard to reach this milestone. The celebration is the fun part and the planning should be too!
