The Ron Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

On Saturday, June 2, 2012 the Ron family of Paramus, New Jersey celebrated their daughter Danielle’s Bat Mitzvah at Temple Israel in Ridgewood, New Jersey followed by a festive brunch immediately following the service. On Sunday there was a celebration fit for a fashionista, with family and friends at Seasons of Washington Township, New Jersey.

All party photography was done by Lior Elkayam of Prestige Photography & Video. The rest of the Mitzvah vendor information is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.

v2stamp_project

For her Bat Mitzvah project, Danielle decided to sell books for an organization called, Larger than Life. They are a non-profit organization that strives to help Jewish and Israeli children, who are sick with cancer, cope with their fears, treatment and isolation by providing support and life-saving medications. Each $25.00 donation “buys” a book for a sick child. With the help of family, friends and her Temple community, she was able to raise more than $1400 in donations and provide over 50 sick children with books.

Advice from Mom Sigal:

My advice is to have fun with it! I loved every minute of planning it and loved it even more when it all came together. Danielle was amazing reading her Torah and Parsha at the service! She was great reading her candle lighting poems and her BM project speech at the party. Everyone had lots of fun, especially Danielle who wishes that she can do it all over again.”
