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.

Prestige Photography had an airbrush station and each of Danielle’s guests received a t-shirt that they customized.
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.
Danielle was awarded a plaque from Larger Than Life in honor of her Bat Mitzvah project
