I don't know... They're expensive, formal, AND I have to be the centre of attention! You know I'm shy!
Yes, there are cons but there are plenty of pros! This is your rite of passage! It only happens once in a lifetime. Let's imagine your Bar Mitzvah before you say no for sure.
A Bar Mitzvah is a coming of age ceremony that symbolizes you becoming a man. There's also going to be plenty of dancing and food so I guarantee you'll have fun. Look at you dancing already!
A Bar Mitzvah is considered a blessing. It symbolizes your relationship with God, faith, togetherness, and how you shouldn't let emotions interfere with your decision making.
Having one will help you take on a new stage of life and feel excited! This isn't about who's watching, it's only about you. You'll regret missing out on one of the most important ceremonies in Jewish religion.
So? Yes or no to a Bar Mitzvah?
Definitely YES! I don't know what I was thinking. This ceremony is so important to me and my culture, just like a Sweet 16 or Quinceanera. I want to strengthen my relationship with God. I'm excited!
