New Mitzvah Organzier
The Ticktin Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

 

Jared Ticktin celebrated his Bar Mitzvah on December 3, 2011 at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco with an evening party at Mission Bay Conference Center.

The theme was easy to figure out since Jared loves basketball. They had lots of unique touches and we thank them for sharing these ideas with our readers.

Scott Lasky of Scott Lasky Photography was their photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom.

Keeping with the basketball theme, the Ticktins created the below place card frames themselves.

Stamp - Mitzvah Decor

 

Christina from Glow Event Design created the basketball decor for Jared’s celebration. His basketball logo was used in many elements of the decor. It was projected on the wall, used for his custom postage stamps, on the dance floor decal, stickers and thank you notes.

Here’s some Mom-to-Mom advice from Leslie: “Remember that the celebration is for your child’s hard work and dedication during this life cycle moment! It’s very easy to get caught up in the planning, and lose focus…I love the little details (basketball confetti, basketball cocktail napkins, orange candy for the buffet etc.) but being truly present during my son’s Bar Mitzvah service was my goal, and I am happy to say that I enjoyed every minute! (See if your rabbi will spend some time with your family immediately before the service, that was wonderful for us!) Jared was so poised on the bimah and he spoke beautifully while sending a great message to the congregation…and afterwards, we were thrilled to PARTY all night to help him celebrate with our family and friends.”

 

Stamp - Mitzvah Project Idea

 

For his Mitzvah Project, Jared helped cook meals for Koret Family House, a non-profit guesthouse where families stay while their critically ill children receive treatment at UCSF Children’s Hospital.
