The Robinson Bat Mitzvah Spotlight


Sofie Robinson celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on November 5, 2011 with a morning service at Temple Or Elohim in Jericho, New York followed by an afternoon celebration at The Thatched Cottage in Centerport, New York.

She loves the television show Glee and used this as inspiration for her Bat Mitzvah theme.

We thank her for sharing all her creative ideas with our readers.



Party photography was provided by Hi Tech Party Productions and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.
