As a boy, when you turn 13 in the Jewish community, it’ time for your Bar Mitzvah. This is when you officially become committed to observing the commandments of Judaism.

Bar Mitzvah’ literal translation is “son of the commandments.” As with weddings, there is a lot of planning involved to prepare for a Bar Mitzvah. A local specialist can help you and your guest with some nice Men’ formal attire if you’re thinking about it.


Most Bar Mitzvahs are held during morning Shabbat services at the Synagogue. However, some happen on other days and some opt to hold a private Bar Mitzvah at different locations.

How to Observe Bar Mitzvah Tradition and Dress Appropriately

During the Bar Mitzvah, men will wear a prayer shawl, also known as a tallit. The tallit serves as a reminder of the commandments of the Torah and is reserved for Jews only. However, the kippa can be worn by all men, and in some synagogues, women as well. Wearing the kippa serves as an act of respect to God. barmitzvah

One can expect quite a bit of standing for certain prayers. Try to follow along in the siddur or prayer book. The Bar Mitzvah child may lead in such prayers and may give a speech about part of the Torah.

Bar Mitzvah parties can sometimes be elaborate events, and people often dress in a formal or semi-formal manner. The event can be held at private homes, synagogues, or event venues. Like a wedding reception, the Bar Mitzvah party varies in scope and has a great celebratory atmosphere. It is common for guests to provide gifts.

Some Bar Mitzvahs may have a band or a DJ that plays modern music, and the Bar Mitzvah child is sometimes raised on a chair. Meals range from several courses to buffet style with traditional Jewish dishes. They can even be formal and informal and sometimes wearing a suit or to the occasion just show even more class and respect for the day. Rose Tuxedo has been renting suits and tuxedos for Bar Mitzvah for years in Phoenix, AZ, and the surrounding cities. barmitzvah2

At the party, the Bar Mitzvah child often performs a candle lighting ceremony. He lights a candle honoring certain family members and friends. All in all, the occasion is a joyous and momentous one and a key event in the life of a Jewish boy. Call us today if you have any questions about renting tuxedos for your big day.

Why Choose Rose Tuxedo Rental for your Bar Mitzvah

Rose Tuxedo is family-owned and operated. Do you know why patronizing a local store is better than going to a big national chain? It keeps your money in the community rather than sending it off to a corporate headquarters that might even be in a different country. Local businesses keep the community connected, and a community business knows what its community needs.

Rose Tuxedo has its inventory of tuxes, suits, and accessories in its own warehouses. There are no shipping costs or waiting for a shipment to arrive. This is important when you need your formal wear quickly or when you have an emergency “costume malfunction”.

One of Rose Tuxedo’s favorite sayings is, “When it has to be perfect…”. Well, that’s exactly what they mean. Now, everyone knows there is no such thing as perfection, but if any business can come close to the bullseye, it’s Rose Tuxedo. They are willing to go the extra mile to be sure that you get what you want when you want it, and for the price that you can afford.
