The Feldman family from Millburn, New Jersey celebrated son Sam’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at Congregation B’nai Israel in Millburn, New Jersey.
Following the service there was a Kiddush luncheon and the next day Sam’s guests were invited to keep the celebration going at Sam’s Super Bowl Party at The Sports Academy in Millburn, New Jersey.

And what’s a Super Bowl party without boxes? Each guest got a box in the pool and at each quarter awesome prizes were awarded to each of the winners.
There were many great moments during the night.
The Feldman family was happy to celebrate Sam and were all smiles throughout the night
Alison Halper of ID Clothing created Jerseys which were given to each guest as a party favor.
Sam participated in the Volun-tween program sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women. Each week Sam and some of his friends went to an after-school program in East Orange, New Jersey. He truly enjoyed playing with and teaching the children. It was incredibly rewarding for him.
The best part were the hugs and kisses he received at the end of each visit
Some advice from Mom Cari:
“For future Mitzvah Moms, I can’t stress enough, don’t sweat the small stuff. In the end, the color of the cocktail napkins or type of flowers for the centerpieces won’t make or break your day. Keep the focus on what is truly important- your child- and enjoy every moment!”
