A Bar Mitzvah is, arguably, the most important event in a young Jewish boy or girl’s life. And, once the praying, and the torah-reading, and the mazal-toving is out of the way, it’s time to kick back, turn up, and party down.

The kid whose parents just want their child to turn thirteen surrounded by friends, family, and maybe a reasonably priced DJ. How’s that kid going to compete in a world where Bar Mitzvah parties mean Iggy Azalea flashes her crotch, and Michael Douglas pulls his?
