A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an important step and rite of passage, especially for the parents who are beginning their process of letting go. Letting your son or daughter transition to adulthood and become a fantastic member of their community.
A Bar/Bat Mitzvah video montage has been a highlight of many celebrations for years — creating one for your child is simple with VidDay.
A VidDay video gift is a simple way to bring family and friends together, whether or not they can come to the synagogue in-person to see the ceremony.
We've come up with three incredible ways you can use video to bring others into the celebration.
Share as a Gift
Mazel tov, Bar Mitzvah! Send a big congratulations on what they've achieved and their rite of passage as an adult. Gather messages from family, friends, Rabbi, or cantor, giving them a big congrats on their Bar or Bat Mitzvah!
It's the best present to send them off to adulthood. They will treasure it for years to come and go back to listening to the words of wisdom that everyone gave to them.
Share the gift of knowledge, having everyone join in on a video gift.
Share the Event
Not everyone was able to make it to the party? Want to share the celebration with everyone?
You'll be taking loads of pictures and videos during the party anyway. You can upload all of your photos and video into your VidDay Event Page.
Here you can drag and drop your photos and video in order. We'd suggest in chronological order, so everyone can feel like they were there with you. From there, you can choose a beautiful theme and some background music to give your video a polished look.
Share on Social Media
Share all the memories of their special day by sharing their Bar or Bat Mitzvah on social media. You can upload the video to your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts.
As a bonus, sharing the video on social media also allows you to include friends and family who couldn't attend. You can also add a video of you thanking the guests who made it to the Bar or Bat Mitzvah or add in a thank you note at the end of your video!
All your guests will truly appreciate it.
