The Goldman family from East Setauket, New York, celebrated son Nathaniel’s (Nate) Bar Mitzvah on September 19. 2015, with the service at Temple Isaiah in Stony Brook, New York, and a party at Nissequogue Golf Club in St. James, New York.
This family pulled out all the stops giving Nate an unforgettable celebration. Nate loves playing the guitar. Not only did he made a rock star entrance at his party, but he also performed!

The family worked with Jill Price of Jilly P Invitations and Gifts on two invitations.
Bar Mitzvah Service & Mitzvah Style
Décor & Special Touches
Balloon Artistry created the amazing centerpiece decor showcasing guitars and rock bands. Mom Arlyn designed the room working with cool lounge furniture, hi-top tables, a dance floor, and red carpet from Tower Productions.
There were many creative details adding to the branding of Nate’s theme.
Music & Entertainment
The team from Barattini Productions played Nate’s favorites to keep the dance floor packed all night long, and Magician Eric Wilzig performed an amazing act with the star of the night.
Simon Elliot Events provided many interactive activities including a touchscreen arcade for the cocktail hour, a pop star recording booth and custom speaker station — a huge hit!
Mitzvah Favors & Exit Treats
Gotham T-Shirts designed the black hooded-zipped sweatshirts. There were also Nate’s World Tour concert t-shirts in the logo’d backpacks. Guests exited this celebration with breakfast for the next morning thanks to the Goldman family who provided bagels as an Exit Treat.
As part of his Mitzvah Project for Temple Isaiah, Nate took part in 13 Mitzvahs. Some of those included: playing the guitar at a nursing home, donating toys and food for different drives, donated his own money to help build a school in Cambodia; sent care packages to send to soldiers overseas and since he is a black belt in karate, he helped out in classes with kids who were lower belt ranks at his karate school.
