Mitzvah Inspire: Fishing Theme With A Creative Candle Lighting

Event planner Jeffrey Klein of East 7th Street Promotions impressed us with his candle lighting picture cubes and now he’s done it again.

We love his interpretation of a “fishing” themed Bar Mitzvah with another creative candle lighting display!
