Marking the shift from boy to young man or from girl to young woman is hard enough, but when you have to make a speech at your bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, there’s that much more pressure added. Speechesforyou can assist with your bar mitzvah speech or your bat mitzvah speech.
If you’re the boy or girl having the bar or bat mitzvah, there are all those expectations: that you say something related to your Torah portion and appear to have understood your new standing in the Jewish world.
