Choosing an appropriate length for your speech:
The speed of delivering a speech varies from person to person, however, the average speech rate is approximately 100-125 words per minute. A two-minute speech, or approximately 250 words, fit on one typed double-spaced page. To assure the audiences’ attention, the duration of most Jewish celebration speeches should not be longer than three minutes.
There are exceptions to the rule, of course. While most young attendees at a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah are likely to prefer for adults to keep their speeches short, longer speeches would be more appropriate for occasions such as engagements or weddings. Most parents of grooms/brides/bar & bat mitzvah boys and girls usually speak between eight and 12 minutes.
Please note that your speech will reflect you Jewish affiliation (orthodox, modern orthodox, conservative, reform, traditional, unaffiliated). It is your decision whether to include Judaic texts (Talmud, weekly Torah portion, Mishna, sagely wisdom) and/or traditions and to what extent.
