Tips on Performing

Let’s face it – a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is in many ways your first big performance, and unless you’ve been doing piano recitals since you were five or had the lead role in your school play, this is not good news.  So, here are a few tips on getting through it, compiled from teenagers who’ve recently been through it:

  • Bring a glass of water up to the bimah in case you get very thirsty.
  • Have a good breakfast beforehand so you’re not starving up there.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
