The Bar / Bat Mitzvah is a milestone and event for great celebration. There are so many details to consider when planning a Bar / Bat Mitzvah party. Creating a website dedicated to your Bar / Bat Mitzvah that can be easily updated and customized will help make your Mitzvah celebration a real success.
Here are 8 reasons why you have a Bar / Bat Mitzvah website:
1. Ability to share and update event details
The Bar / Bat Mitzvah usually consists of an entire weekend of events, including a Friday Shabbat dinner, synagogue services, entertainment and lunch or socializing the following day. Your Mitzvah website will provide your guests with details pertaining to the events, including date, time and location. Your website can include a map of all guest routing sites. Having a Mitzvah website is a good way to keep your guest informed, as he or she will be easily informed of any last minute updates or changes.
2. Manage guests out of town
Relatives and friends outside the city will often travel long distances to be part of your family glory. To make traveling planning easier for your guests, you can set up links on your website for various lodging and travel options. If you inform travelers on weather on your Mitzvah website, provide location maps, a list of things to do in your city, as well as economical choices for hotel, air and car reservations.
3. Send invitations and RSVP online
You can invite guests to your Bar / Bat Mitzvah by sending invitations, or you can save time and money by inviting guests via email. No matter how you send invitations, guests should be encouraged to RSVP online. You can customize your RSVP form to inquire about anything, including dietary restrictions.
4. Share photos and videos
You can further personalize your Bar / Bat Mitzvah website by displaying photos and videos of you as a baby, with family and friends, on vacations, etc. Friends and relatives should also be encouraged to post photos. Pictures can also be posted in your Bar / Bat Mitzvah after the celebration. Photos and videos are a great way to remind yourself.
5. Explain the reading of the Torah
Your Mitzvah website can provide viewers and your guests with an English translation and the significance behind the Torah piece that is being read on the date your Bar / Bat Mitzvah will be available. Being able to understand it will make it more meaningful for your guests.
6. Explain the Mitzvah project
Your Bar / Bat Mitzvah website is the best place to describe good social work guests to complete as part of your Bar / Bat Mitzvah preparation. You can explain why you chose this particular project and why it is important to you. If you are raising money for a particular case or organization close to your heart, you can ask guests to donate to the case online directly from the Mitzvah website. Your guests will be more inclined to donate because it is easier and more convenient to donate online with a credit card.
7. Gift registry
You can make it easy for your guests by giving them opportunities for potential giveaways. You can run a gift registry directly at the Mitzvah website, with details and a direct link to your online registry. Not only does this save your guests time-wasting, but it also ensures that you get gifts to enjoy.
8. Message board / quiz
To make your Mitzvah website more fun and interactive, you can include a quiz about yourself and see how much relatives and friends know you. You can also interact with guests before and after your Bar / Bat Mitzvah using the message board on your website. You can engage your guests by asking them about potential topics, music, and activities they have at the party.
