New Mitzvah Organzier
Mitzvah Inspire: Book Worm Mitzvah

Save the Day Events, a boutique event planning firm, and owner Penny Rabinowitz, transformed the ballroom of Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood, New Jersey.

The Bar Mitzvah boy, an avid reader, had a reception that celebrated his love of reading.

His special day was built around a vintage library with details that we just can’t be quiet about!

Books and other library paraphernalia were included in the invitations, decor, place cards and centerpieces.
