How Much Should A Bar Or Bat Mitzvah Cost?

A child’s bar or bat mitzvah is a special religious ceremony celebrating thirteen years in the making; a day many Jewish parents dream about since their child was teetering around in diapers. While many families tend to keep their budget between $15,000 and $30,000, it’s very possible to plan a modest bar or bat mitzvah for just a few thousand dollars by getting creative with your resources. Not that it’s a rarity for some affluent families to shell out over $100,000 for an extravagant event in New York City, either. If these numbers leave you feeling a little schvitzy, fear not! Our comprehensive list will help you get organized, begin your planning process, and figure out a realistic budget that best suits your family.
