The Needleman family from Short Hills, New Jersey, celebrated their daughter Julia’s Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, March 19, 2016, with a service at Temple B’nai Jeshurun followed by an afternoon party at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, New Jersey.
Julia knew exactly what she wanted for her theme – “got julia?” a play on the “got milk?” campaign. For this Bat Mitzvah girl with many interests, it worked perfectly!

Decor and Details
Debbie’s Designs created the decor, centerpieces, sign-in, place cards/buddy board and candle lighting.
Julia’s friends received long sleeve and short sleeve t-shirts.
Julia loves animals and wanted to make bedding/blankets for animals in shelters. She chose St. Hubert’s in Madison, New Jersey, and she thought it would be great to recycle as well, so she asked for donations of t-shirts. She stuffed them and hot-glued them together to make soft blankets for the dogs/cats in the shelter.
Some of the pillows made from donated t-shirts for the shelter
Mom to Mom Advice From Ann
“Be organized. I almost missed a payment deadline because I wasn’t checking all the dates. They were very good about it and it wasn’t a problem. I tried to research as much as I could before selecting vendors and once chosen, I stopped reading about them because I didn’t want to second guess myself.”
The following vendors helped to make Julia’s Bat Mitzvah special. If you give any of them a call, let them know you read about their services on MitzvahMarket.com.
