The Goldenberg Family from Manalapan, New Jersey celebrated son Jared’s Bar Mitzvah on October 23, 2010. The reception was held at B’nai Tikvah in North Brunswick, New Jersey.
They wanted a high energy, brightly colored, classy party and as you scroll down you will see they accomplished all that and more!
We want to thank the Goldenberg Family for sharing their special day with our Mitzvah Market readers.
Unlimited Exposures captured all the fun. All other vendor information is listed below.

For Jared’s Mitzvah Project he collected new and slightly used sports equipment. He was able to use friends, family and his community to collect all the equipment. Then he donated it to a charity called SportsGift.org.
This charity refurbishes the equipment and donates it to underprivileged children all over the world. He chose this project because he love sports and wanted to help children who would never have had the opportunity to play without these donations.
