The Lindsay Silverman Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

 

Lindsay Silverman celebrated her Bat Mitzvah in March 2012 at Temple Or Elohim in Jericho, New York.

This was the third and final Bat Mitzvah celebration for this family of three girls. Lindsay’s initial and bright pink was the theme for this fun celebration.

Neal Bloom was the photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

This past August, the Silverman family, along with close friends and their families took a trip to Israel. There were 12 adults and 9 kids in all. Three of the kids shared a Bat Mitzvah on Masada together. The Rabbi who officiated at the Bnai Mitzvah was a cousin of someone from the group.

Stamp - Mitzvah Project Idea

 

 

For her Mitzvah Project, Lindsay baked and sold chocolate chip cookies in memory of her grandfather Stan who passed away from a brain tumor. All the money was donated to the National Brain Tumor Society.

Now that Mom Lisa has successfully planned her third daughter’s Bat Mitzvah celebration, we thought she could share some advice:

“I definitely got more creative and better at doing things myself with each celebration. I recommend looking at other families parties for ideas. I used two ideas that I saw at a friend’s Bat Mitzvah. We made table numbers using photos of Lindsay growing up and we made our own photo sign-in book on Snap Fish. I saw both of those ideas in the Karen Mitzvah Family Spotlight story.

Lindsay’s sister Sammi created the table numbers featuring Lindsay at different ages and Dazzling Parties turned them into easel photos
