Candle number 1
I light for those who passed.
They can't be here in body
But their spirit will forever last.

All my great grandparents,
And Papa Ivan, too.
Thought I never met him,
I feel his love so true.

Nanny and Pappy are the best,
Always do what it takes.
My sleepovers at their house
Mean special breakfast fruit shakes.

Birthday dinners aplenty,
Broadway shows with you.
Come on, Nanny and Pappy,
Let's light candle 2.

Let's hear it for Grandma Cookie,
Who always takes great care.
She drives us in the "Cookie-mobile,"
And always gets us there.

You treat us at the Dollar Store,
And always let us be.
Grandma Cookie, come on up
And light my candle 3.

Bar Mitzvah Candle lighting Poetry


Dear Amy,
"Your bar mitzvah speech was incredible. Joel did his haftorah portion like a real pro. Then my husband and I delivered that speech and words don’t express how beautiful it was for all of us. I will certainly use you and your marvelous service again."
Nancy C., Boston, MA.

"What a wonderful speech for our daughter's bat mitzvah! I was a little nervous before reading it, but once I got going it was all great. And the audience was rapt. They laughed, they oohed and aahed, and they loved it. We all loved it. Thank you so much! Talk to you soon."
Paula B., Livingston, NJ

Thank you very much for all your kind words!
