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.

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,
"As the parent of a very popular 13 year old, we’re making the bar mitzvah circuit like crazy this year. And I’ve heard a lot of bar mitzvah candle lighting poems of late. But I’m proud to say (and I think I’m being objective) that the one you wrote for Stephen is far and away the best. How you got all those names and all those details into it is amazing. You managed to warm plenty of hearts and get loads of laughter, too. We’re all enormously appreciative. And quite proud. I’m looking at our 11 year-old right now – and planning to call on you in about 2 years for candle lighting poem #2."
Thanks so much! Sandy F., Danbury, CT.

Dear Amy,
"The candle lighting poem you prepared for our son, Dave's bar mitzvah was fantastic! How you managed to get in all the relatives and friends was a testament in your writing. I'll be back when it's time for bar mitzvah #2."
Sincerely, Cindy C., Baltimore, MD.

Thank you very much for all your kind words!
