The Jacobs Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

Attention all Mitzvah Moms, how easy would it be to plan our child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration if our husband was EJ The DJ?!

This was the case for Mitzvah Mom Maria who is married to Ed Jacobs, EJ The DJ. They celebrated their daughter Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah in January 2010 at The Metropolitan in Glen Cove, New York.

Her adorable theme was “Sarah In The City” and all the details are below!

All photography was done by Ira Rosen and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

Stamp - Mitzvah Style


As you will soon see, Sarah loves purple and selected that as the color theme for her party. Her dress was off the rack from Bloomingdales.
