Shalom! Welcome to Israel.
Well, actually this great Bar Mitzvah celebration took place in Washington, D.C. but Evoke Event Planning led by event planner Jodi Moraru made guests feel like they were on a trip to Israel!
This event was full of traditions and meanings, as the family and their guests were able to enjoy a special evening celebrating their heritage and a special day in a magical place.

The room was brought to life with painted murals of beautiful scenes of Israel outlined by stone archways that bordered the walls, stretching from top to bottom.
A painted mural was created
The detailed, rustic setting was decorated with wooden tables and bars.
Each table was accented by vibrant bouquets, orange flowers and almonds!
Mix it up – look how great these exotic tablecloths go with the wooden chairs and tables
Bulbs hanging from the ceiling recreated the feeling of the square in Old Yaffa outside of Tel Aviv
Ridgewell Caterers based the menu off traditional Middle Eastern recipes and delicacies, with a modern and gourmet twist.
Pita pockets with falafel balls or roasted chicken schwarma with Tahini sauce, finished with freshly made Mediterranean dips
Israeli salad, basmati rice tossed with golden sultana raisins, slivered toasted almonds, and of course…french fries
To become a part of the family’s celebration, family and friends were asked to light the candles hanging from an archway representing traditions of Judaism
