It was the third Bar Mitzvah celebration for the Levy family from Jericho, New York.

Their oldest son Ben celebrated with a World Cup Soccer theme, next came Jason’s party which combined his love of music with his love for the LA Lakers. Now it was their youngest brother Casey’s turn!

Casey’s Bar Mitzvah service was held at Temple Or Elohim on Saturday, May 21, 2016, followed by a celebration at Two Below in New Hyde Park, New York, on Friday, May 27, 2016. Casey’s celebration combined his love for soccer and cool soccer cleats!

Invitation and Mitzvah Style

Music Entertainment & Decor

Geo Events, with AG as the MC, provided the music entertainment and lounge furniture.

& Cake

Casey’s sign-in was completely DIY by Mom Caroline. She designed custom high-top sneakers from which featured pictures of Casey, family and friends. She put the sneakers in a lucite display box from The Container Store and had Casey’s friends sign the box with different colored paint pens. It now is a great keepsake in Casey’s room.

Extra Fun & Favors

Simon Elliot Events provided the extra fun and And That provided the favors and wearable dance floor giveaways.

Mom To Mom Advice From Caroline

“With each Bar Mitzvah, I focused more and more on just having the essential things that would make my son happy. This last Bar Mitzvah, while I spent the least amount of time in planning, I was able to pull it all together and then really soak in the evening. It was amazing to see my three boys together and how proud my two older sons were of their younger brother. It was a great reminder of how blessed my husband and I are to have such a wonderful family and friends to share it all with.”
