Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a major milestone in any Jewish household. Did you know you could make your teen's coming of age event eco-chic and totally unique? From plantable Star of David seed favors to responsible silver

Ok my Jewish mamas, I know what you’re thinking. It seems like just yesterday that you were planning your kidlet’s Bris or naming ceremony. I know it feels surreal to now be planning their Mitzvah celebration. Where have the years gone?

Ok, before I start humming “Sunrise, Sunset”, let’s get to my point of this article. While I don’t have the power to turn back time, I can help you make your teen’s coming of age celebration a brilliantly green one truly worthy of your sweet little boy or girl.

For my non-Jewish friends, a Bar Mitzvah (boys) or Bat Mitzvah (girls) is the Jewish ceremony which signals a child’s transition into adulthood. It is akin to a Catholic First Communion, a sweet sixteen party, or a Quinceanera. It usually happens when a Jewish teen is 12 or 13. The Mitzvah consists of a religious ceremony followed by a celebration or party honoring the boy or girl.

Sustainable Bar Mitzvah – Plantable Star of David Favors

The tradition today is to send home favors with all of the party guests. Usually the favor is themed. It can be candy in the colors of the party wrapped in our eco-friendly party bags & string or one of my favorite items, the Star of David Plantable favors. They are customizable, come in a multitude of colors and produce a star patched area of wildflowers when planted. Your guests will remember your daughter or son’s Mitzvah all summer long!
