Bar Mitzvah literally translates as "son of commandment." The word "bar" means "son" in Aramaic, which was the commonly spoken vernacular language of the Jewish people (and much of the Middle East) from around 500 B.C.E. to 400 C.E. The word "mitzvah" is Hebrew for "commandment." The term "bar mitzvah" refers to two things: it is used to describe a boy when he comes of age at 13-years-old and also refers to the religious ceremony that accompanies a boy becoming a Bar Mitzvah.
Often a celebratory party will follow the ceremony and that party is also called a bar mitzvah. AND THAT'S WHERE DARLING EVENTS/D.E. MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT COMES IN.....we will provide you with the absolute best music and entertainment for your simcha with our expert partnerships.
