Celebrate - New Season
The Dropkin Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

 

The Dropkin family from Cortlandt Manor, New York celebrated their son David’s Bar Mitzvah on May 14, 2011.

The service took place at Temple Israel of Northern Westchester and then they had an evening party at Bounce, The Party Place in Yorktown Heights, New York.

David is a geography buff and someone who likes to travel. “Where in the world is David Dropkin?” was their clever theme!

Formal photos taken at their temple were by photographer Alan Weiss. The party zap shots were done by the DoubleImage/Bounce staff and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

The theme for this celebration was “Where in the World is David Dropkin?” David loves to travel and eat all sorts of exotic foods and enjoys different cuisines.

Each table had a matching flag table runner so guests could match the flag on the passport with the table. Check out those worldly balloons

Lemurs are primates found in Madagascar, thankfully this one was stuffed but added some authenticity to the decor!
