Checks in a multiple of $18 are also appropriate. Just put a check in the amount of, say $36 or $54 into a bar mitzvah or general congratulations.
Money/Bonds in increments of 18. If you want to let the bat mitzvah girl choose something for herself (or save for college), money may be the.
I have been invited to go to a Bat Mitzvah in NYC for a co-worker's . Giving money in multiples of $18 is symbolic of giving “chai” or life. It is important to note that a bar mitzvah is not the goal of a Jewish. In honour and recognition of Jewish traditions, including Zeved habat and Bar and Bat Mitzvah, some Christians have begun to conduct a Bar and Bat Barakah ceremony to pronounce blessings upon their children. Others that I know took their child to Israel and had a ceremony at the wailing wall with immediate family only, still others had it at their Synagogue with a simple lunch afterward and no fancy party later. It is at bat mitzvah and 18 very nice venue if that matters. Which is the most appropriate event to bring the gift to? There had to be. Even proms and graduation parties have become bigger-er.
