It's a sign of love/respect in the hunger games, and can be used in a situation where applause might otherwise be expected

The three finger salute from the Hunger Games, it means thanks, it means admiration, it means good bye to someone you love. A bar mitzvah is a Jewish ceremony however, and op just looked like he was doing the Nazi salut.

Why did my comment get so many down votes? I answered the question correctly without saying anything else...

Because Bar Mitzvah's are respectful and religious ? By doing something like this, even as a joke, at an important event is still disrespectful.

don't use religion as an excuse? you are aware that a bah mitzvah is a religious event right? and a sign that appears to be hailing Hitler at a Jewish event would be cause to get kicked out

You blind or something dude? It's a religious event, making a sign directly against people of that religion AND ETHNICITY (YES Jewish is an ethnicity) then it's inappropriate!

It resembles the nazi salute: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/biopdYpCaJrUhRZNl3zzuQuoQfKwRP_MSbc1hPQu_pnAHSbusQoIkdx1K0XUqy0zAa1D4jjEfOzRN9LzvHDsaOkS2ZJ7t6ybRjh6C_9Zg-Ay1yETFga_CawXHOQjllRZ-0OuuSJ7rMzj=w628-h417-nc

Oh wow I had never noticed that before. Why have people not made a bigger deal about the movies and books than? Seems like something that would anger people.

#30, that is not all the Nazi salute is. Do you really know what it is? An awful symbol to Jewish people and the like who suffered under such horrible ruling. Especially to the older generation (or current, whatever) who are unaware of The Hunger Games and the true meaning of the salute OP was actually trying to imitate.

No 35 you misunderstand, I wasn't commenting on the symbolism behind the nazi salute, just the physical aspect of it. In the hunger games, they raise a hand with three fingers up and the index and thumb curled in toward the palm. A nazi salute is all fingers extended upward, held at eye level. It is in essence just raising your hand. They are in no way similar... But I suppose that you may have a point about older generations, though I don't see it myself.

#60 You had the description as thumb and index finger down, but that isn't right. The District 12 sign is for respect and admiration. Going by the book you take your left hand and with your thumb and pinky finger down, press the three middle fingers on your lips and then point your hand in the direction of the person. It doesn't necessarily have to be held just like the Nazi salute (which is the right hand), the movie just uses the right hand and portrays it that way, but in the book it is left
