Ahh, the time to plan your child’s traditional bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah is finally here. It’s a young person’s proclamation that they are entering manhood or womanhood. And a huge celebration to honor that fact. What’s not to love?
But if you’re throwing a party for all of your friends, family, and the entire seventh grade, you’ve got some serious planning to do. When you’re having such an important celebration, and taking such big step into the next stage of life, it’s going to be pretty important to have amazing food that everyone loves.
And yes, that does mean that mom doesn’t have to cook a feast and make all of the treats. (You’re welcome, mom!). Sure, you’ll want some traditional dishes at the party, but a bar or bat mitzvah is also time to splurge on a little catering. Hello, tasty treats! In need of a few ideas for what to serve? We’ve got you covered:
It might not be your average party food, but who wants to be average anyway? And how can you go wrong with bready bagels and rich cream cheese? Better yet: make it a bagel bar, allowing guests to pick what type of bagel and cream cheese they want, with a slicer and toaster nearby. Buy an assortment of freshly baked bagels from a local bakery—or make them at home yourself! Either way, the kids and teens will love this idea. Plus, you can offer lots of toppings like tomato, capers, dill, onion, white fish, gefilte fish, lox, and anything else they could want. Plus, incorporate a lot of different cream cheese options.
Potato knishes are a tasty and savory traditional treat in Jewish culture. And it’s a fan favorite. After all, it’s nothing but cheese, bread, meat, potatoes, and anything else you decide to fill it with. What more could a group of partygoers ask for?

The most important part of any birthday party is the cake. It’s a decorative, sweet ending to a great assortment of dishes, and blowing out the candles is a memorable moment. But why spoil the fun with just another boring store-brand cake when you can really impress your guests with a freshly made, creamy, gourmet ice cream cake? Available in several flavors, it’s just the right way to say “Mazel tov!” to your blooming young adult. Check out Cold Stone’s ice cream cakes here and contact us here to place an order.
