My boss's daughter is having her bat mitzvah, and my husband and I have been invited. I don't really know her, but my boss and I are on a small team of three, so I know him well. The celebration is on a Sunday afternoon at a nice resturant. I have never been to a bat mitzvah before. I am assuming you are supposed to bring a gift, right? How much would you spend on something like this? Do I "cover the cost of the meal"? I feel like that's a little too much to give someone I don't really know. Or do I equate it to a Christian confirmation and give the same I would do for that? But I would feel a little cheap taking that route - as most confirmations that I have been to are typically family only at someones home. If you are supposed to bring a gift - what do you give? Cash? Religous presents? Other gifts that would interest a 13 yr old girl? Thanks for helping out a clueless Catholic!!!
