On the right side of the tile (clockwise from the top center):
The personal inscription
This part of the Ceramic Bar Mitzvah Certificate contains the personal details of the Bar Mizvah, in Hebrew and in English, and is inscribed according to the information you supply during the order process.
Please note that the entire calligraphic inscription is written with a free hand by a professional calligraphy artist, and therefore the lettering differs slightly with each name or letter combination.
The central area of the Bar Mitzva certificate carries two sets of details, a standard inscription of the Bar Mitzvah's name and his ceremony, and optional additional details.
The inscription elements:
- Date of the event according to Common and Hebrew calendars
- Hebrew name of the Parashah (portion of the Torah) read by the Boy
- Boy's Hebrew name or Girl's Hebrew name, in Hebrew letters
- Boy's or girl's English name, in Latin letters
OF COURSE, if you choose to add the family name (as in the image samples) the fonts will be written smaller
- The sentence: "Was called up to the Torah as a Bar Mitzvah" (or "Bat Mitzvah" for a girl)
The additional details:
At the lower part of the inscription area of the plaque there is room for two additional details: at the left you may insert the congregation's name & place (as in the sample picture); at the right you may add the name of the Cantor or Rabbi who taught the boy, or a short greeting like "Mazel Tov from Bubbie & Zaidie".
