A Blend of Old & New

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a highly important and exciting time for members of the Jewish community. The age of 13 marks your coming of age in Jewish practice, coming with many privileges and responsibilities to your faith and community. Such a momentous transition is usually celebrated by an equally momentous reception afterward, often on the same scale, with the same enthusiasm as a wedding reception, and an important part of any celebration is the music. Picking the right music choices for your Bar Mitzvah can sometimes be a tough decision—which will draw the crowd together more, traditional songs or modern favorites? Which will the honoree enjoy most? We’ve got suggestions for both.

Traditional music, whether played by a live band or something prerecorded, is a great way to honor this significant, longstanding Jewish tradition. It will allow you to connect with your roots, as well as for the young to connect with the older members of the crowd, who may be more used to the traditional ballads.

Examples of traditional Bar Mitzvah music include:

  • Shalom Aleichem
  • Bar Mitzvah Dance
  • Tzena Tzena Tzena
  • Jewish Farmers Dance
  • Avraham Dance
  • Hatikva
  • & more


While many of these traditional songs are lively as well, the honoree may also want to celebrate with some more current songs that fit their tastes. A combination of both old and new songs is often used to have fun celebrating the honoree’s big day. 

Here are some popular modern picks for the entrance song:

  • “Raise Your Glass” by Pink
  • “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
  • “I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas
  • “Applause” by Lady Gaga
  • “Celebrate” by Pitbull
  • “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
  • “The Man” by Aloe Blacc
  • Or any other of your child’s favorite songs that are uplifting and start the celebration
