When my youngest son Yonatan became a Bar Mitzvah and we were in the middle of all of the preparations, I called him over to talk to him for a minute and explained to him that I have something important to tell him. “Look Yonatan,” I said, “everything that we are working on in preparation for your Bar Mitzvah like the hall, the decorations, how many people are coming and who exactly they are, band and singer etc. is all relatively important but really they are not. You can get along fine in life without these things too. What is important though is your character and your connection to Hashem, that you should be involved in Mitzvos, have Yiras Shamayim, your hands and feet should run to spiritual and holy matters between your daily activities, and if you succeed to hold onto these, you will definitely have a good and happy life. When you will be Bar Mitzvah and enjoying all of the beauty around you, do not forget that all of these things are temporary, and will be gone immediately once the party is over. However, the spiritual content of your Bar Mitzvah will accompany you for the rest of your life.”
Yonatan’s facial expression showed me that he understood and internalized what I said.
I therefore dedicate this song Birchas Ha’Av to everyone who is celebrating a Bar Mitzvah – This message is for you too!

פיך ידבר חכמות ולבך יהגה אימות
ידיך יהיו עוסקות במצוות עוסקות במצוות
רגליך ירוצו לעשות רצון אביך שבשמים
ויהי רצון מלפני אבינו שבשמים
שיתן בלבך אהבתו ויראתו
ותהא יראת השם על פניך כל ימי חייך
