Whats a good gift for a bar mitzvah boy? A shtender? A sefer? Which sefer?
Like those small shtenders on the table to tilt a sefer..
Mishna brura on english is an excellent gift
Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in English
Mikraos Gedolos Chumash
While the above suggestions are all good ones, there’s a great chance you
you’ll be duplicating because someone else beat you to them..
How about a biography, interesting sefer on life, Jewish history or a “motivater” sefer? So many interesting publications now on the market..
I’ve given one of these as a gift years ago, and the then Bar Mitzvah boy, now married, tells me he still re-reads the book..
Or a gift certificate from any Judaica store and let the boy choose.
With most people in todays generation not knowing Hebrew (or Yiddish for that mater) whatever sefer you get should be in English.
