Bar Mitzvah Poems

After all those years of Hebrew school, your child has made it. Now's the time to celebrate his bar mitzvah.

Amy, "Your bar mitzvah poem was fantastic! Everybody asked for your info! What a talent you have! I could never write so well. You saved the day!" Sincerely, Joan B, Chestnut Hill, MA.

We at Poemstogo are your mitzvah headquarters! From poems to speeches and toasts, not to forget the famous candlelighting ceremony, we would love to share in your joy by writing for you.

Here's a little excerpt:

Alon, it's your Bar Mitzvah,
Today you area man.
A wondrous rite of passage,
Now, go be all you can.

So attentive to others' feelings,
A straight A student in school.
With those long, cascading golden locks,
You're a vision - just so cool!

You never forget a birthday,
Or to provide a special lift.
I'll never forget one Mother's Day,
And your extraordinary gift.

You wanted to make me breakfast,
But I had forgotten to go shopping.
So you used whatever food we had,
And you had my eyes just popping.

The breakfast that you gave me
Was a classic, sure to please.
Six crackers piled upon a plate,
With apples, pickles and cheese.


All of our poems are based solely on your own information. So each one is unique, reflecting your youngster’s character, his strengths, his feelings toward family and friends, his coming of age - at this marvelous occasion.

Upon receipt of your order, you will receive a special bar mitzvah questionnaire via email. We ask that you fill this out as thoroughly as you can. We will use your information to write your poem.

For any special requests, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Bar Mitzvah Poetry


Dear Amy,
"The occasion of David’s bar mitzvah was a big to-do as you can imagine. With all the commotion leading up to the big day, I just couldn't imagine writing the candle lighting poem myself. I'm so happy I discovered you and PoemsToGo. Your questionnaire was so easy. Actually, it was fun to fill it out. And the way you used it all -- to write a personal and utterly original poem covering all our friends, our family and all the wonderful times and memories in David's life. He was thrilled. We were all thrilled. Thanks so much, Amy. I'll tell all my friends about PoemsToGo!"
Sincerely, Debra

Dear Amy,
"Mere words can’t describe how wonderful your candle lighting poem was. You captured my son’s feelings and thoughts for his relatives in such a warm, heartfelt way. I was so moved when Larry read it, in front of all our friends and relatives. You were able to include all that was important. No easy feat. Honest to goodness, Larry felt like a rock star and we are all so delighted with your work. An excellent job!"
Thank you once again, Sheila C., Livingston, NJ.

Thank you very much for all your kind words!
