Congratulations to the boy!

I will give the boy a Chumesh or Gematria. Also, hope that someone in the family will encourage him to continue reading and reflecting on them beyond age 12.

Mazal tov!

My tradition is to give a book about Judaism as a Bar Mitzvah gift. He might not read it immediately, but it will be there for him when he's ready.

Mazal tov!

What a great way to have us all attend Tuvi's Bar Mitzvah. May you and Temmy enjoy great nachas from the kids and grandkids and get to celebrate every milestone for many good years to come in good health. The greatest gift to give your progeny is the gift of you! Love, Yerachmiel and Chanie

Rabbi Salomon, I give the Bar Mitzvah Bocher a personalized and beautifully designed piece of art, complete with a complex GEMATRIA, to commemorate the event. I find his name in a portion of his Parsha and/or his Haftora and highlight it. He will cherish it for the rest of his life. Parents tell me that it was the nicest gift he received. (I also sell them.) If you send me your e-mail, I will forward you a PDF of a sample art. כל טוב Silvain Miller, Toronto.

PDF sample art gift for Bar Mitzvah

I read your comment (Jan.12.2012) regarding Bar Mitzvah gift and would appreciate if you could share it with me, as my grandson will have his Bar Mitzvah in two months - Toda Raba
