New Mitzvah Organzier
“Craigslist” Bar Mitzvah Theme

The Bruder family from Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, celebrated their son Craig’s Bar Mitzvah at Congregation B’nai Tikvah with a reception at Classical Caterers in North Brunswick Township, New Jersey.

As you will see below, this family cleverly used their son’s first and last name in their theme and as part of their montage! The Craig’s List theme was a play on his first name and centered around all his favorite things. Their last name was used in the opening sequence of their montage, which was a play on the popular show The Brady Bunch!

Pictured L-R : Brother Zach, Dad Bryan, Brother Eric, Mom Julie, Bar Mitzvah Boy Craig.

The photographer was Park Ave Studio and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of this story.
