NEW – Birchcraft Bar/Bat Mitzvah Invitation Collection

Monday, August 10th, 2009

In Judaism, a Bar Bitzvah (boy), or Bat Mitzvah (girl), marks a ceremony for the boy or girl coming of age. According to Jewish law, when Jewish children reach the age of majority (generally thirteen years for boys and twelve for girls) they become responsible for their actions, and “become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah”. In many Conservative and Reform synagogues, girls celebrate their Bat Mitzvahs at age 13, along with boys. This also coincides with physical puberty. Prior to this, the child’s parents hold the responsibility for the child’s adherence to Jewish law and tradition and, after this age, children bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics and are privileged to participate in all areas of Jewish community life, (Wikipedia).

Announce and celebrate your child’s growing maturity and their new found responsibility to observe and practice the commandments of the Torah with this stylish, bright, fun and sophisticated collection of Birchcraft Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah invitations. Our new Birchcraft collection of Bar/Bat Mitzvah invitations includes a variety of designs that coincide with your child’s style and personality featuring delicate, formal and classic invitations to sassy, vibrant and funky teenager-friendly designs. Make invitation ordering a fun event with your child as it will set the tone for the entire event. Take a look at some of the newest designs below that include ribbons, Star of David and Jerusalem designs, Torah graphics, Hebrew text and more…

Don’t forget! These Birchcraft Bar and Bat Mitzvah invitations are also available with response cards, reception cards, thank you notes and accommodations cards…all matching to coordinate your entire milestone event!
