Bar Bat Mitzvah Invitation Wording Examples

Wondering how to write a Bar Mitzvah invitation? To craft the text that conveys who you are and how you feel, decide first if you want your guests to:

  • join you

  • share with you

  • honor you

  • worship with you

  • or some combination of the above.

    Then decide if you want to refer to yourself formally and in the third person (as in David and Olivia Klein or Mr. and Mrs. David Klein) or more informally, where you just refer to "we" and "us" and name yourselves at the close of the text.

    The following are all taken from actual invitations sent in the last two years.

    Celebrates becoming Bar Mitzvah

    Chants a portion of the Torah on the
    Occasion of becoming Bar Mitzvah

    Chants a portion of the Torah on the
    Occasion of his Bar Mitzvah

    It's worth noting that, technically, no one becomes a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The proper use of the words Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is as an adjective rather than a noun. So one "becomes Bar Mitzvah" rather than "becomes a Bar Mitzvah."
