A Bar Mitzvah Boy’s Theme: My Favorite Things

 

The Marx family celebrated Seth’s Bar Mitzvah with a service and party at Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club in Farmingdale, New Jersey, on Saturday, October 10, 2015. The weather was perfect and during the Havdalah service, guests were treated to a view of the sunset overlooking the golf course.

For Seth’s brother Gregory, they celebrated with a basketball theme to reflect his love of the sport and the New York Knicks. For Seth’s party, his colors were purple and yellow for the Los Angeles Lakers, but his theme was all about SETH and centered around his favorite things.

Candle Lighting

Their candle lighting ceremony featured a cooking theme (which they learned about on Mitzvah Market). Each group that was called up added an ingredient into the bowl. Mom and Dad added love and Seth stirred the mixture.

Mitzvah Project

Seth collected unused school supplies from his classmates when they cleaned out their lockers before summer vacation. After sorting through the boxes of donated items, some of these supplies were donated to Boys Town Jerusalem. Seth’s Bar Mitzvah tutor’s daughter brought the supplies to Israel. The rest of the supplies went to the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County.

 

Mom-To-Mom Advice From Robin

“Since this was our second Bar Mitzvah, I was much more relaxed than the first one. I used many of the same vendors because I was happy with the job they did the first time. Whenever I felt myself getting stressed I reminded myself that this is a happy occasion.”
