The Siff family from Plantation, Florida, celebrated son Zachary’s (Zac) Bar Mitzvah on November 7, 2015, with a service at Ramat Shalom Synagogue in Plantation, Florida, and a celebration in the evening at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania, Florida.
Zac is a huge basketball fan, but didn’t want a typical basketball theme so they came up with a unique variation: a Street Ball Jam Party.
Pictured L-R: Dad Larry, Bar Mitzvah boy Zachary, Brother Joshua and Mom Robin.
The photographer was Trevor Goldsmith Photography and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.
Mom Robin created the navy and orange invitation. A guest framed the invitation as a gift to Zac.
The Siff family invited President and Mrs. Obama to his Bar Mitzvah and in return he received a letter from President Obama and his wife expressing congratulations.
A great keepsake!
Decor and Details
The Gallery of Amazing Things was the perfect venue for a basketball/street ball party as it already has concrete floors and an industrial feel.
Music and Entertainment
MC David and the crew of Pure Energy Entertainment entertained guests on the dance floor. There were many cool interactive activities for the Siff’s guests to enjoy along including an awesome airbrush artist for towels and a fun photo booth.
The candle lighting display was awesome handmade by Mom Robin.
Mitzvah Exit Treat
Guests received custom bagels in the letters Z-A-C, created by Broadway Bagels. Mom Robin bought the bagel boxes at Paper Mart and had custom stickers made at a local print shop.
The label read, “The best things in life are meant to be shared”
Zac did multiple Mitzvah Projects. He signed up for Remember Us and was paired up for his Bar Mitzvah service with a child who perished in the Holocaust. He also has volunteered for the past two years assisting in Sunday school classes and organized and preserved prayer books in the synagogue. He still volunteers in the iServe program at his Temple, Ramat Shalom.
Zac promoted the Remember Us program by giving other Bar Mitzvah students bracelets to promote this worthwhile cause
Mom to Mom Advice From Mom Robin
“I fired my day-of coordinator three weeks prior to the event because he wasn’t making my son’s Bar Mitzvah a priority. It was the hardest thing I had to do. In the end, I found the best event producer. We are even good friends. I say she was the best thing to come out of the event.”
