Many Jewish parents encourage their children to observe the commandments, according to Jewish law. According to the Judaism 101 website, when a Jewish girl turns 12, she reaches the age of formal accountability. If a girl accepts this obligation to observe the commandments, she marks it with a special bat mitzvah ceremony. The Jewish term means "daughter of the commandment" in the Hebrew language. When you wish to help a young girl celebrate, word a bat mitzvah card carefully to share your excitement and good wishes.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Place the words "Mazel Tov!" at the top of your card. Within the Jewish faith, telling another person Mazel Tov imparts an important blessing synonymous with wishing someone congratulations. Jewish faith intertwines faith and destiny with constellations. "Mazel" has several definitions, but constellation and good fortune are two meanings connected with the word. This makes the wish especially appropriate for a bat mitzvah card as a girl celebrates her commitment to the Jewish faith.

  2. 2

    Write a few sentences that communicate your special wishes for the girl. Because the girl will be studying the Torah (Jewish bible or scriptures) and using it to lead her future decisions, refer to it in your comments. For example, write, "As you take this important step, may you know God's grace, study the Torah and grow in wisdom and understanding. Wishing you happiness, health and prosperity in everything you do."

  3. 3

    Close the card with simple words such as, "In God's love" or "Many blessings." Sign your name beneath the closing. Place the card into an envelope and seal it.
