Tyler Berger celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in May, 2012 at the Old Westbury Golf and Country Club in Old Westbury, New York.
This was the second Mitzvah for this family of five. Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah celebration was held at the same venue two years earlier and with the help of Pat Glenn Productions the room looked completely different for Tyler’s party.
Simon Elliot Events was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

Mom Nicole has this advice for our readers now that two of her three children’s Mitzvahs have happened.
“Although I’m a last minute person, I would recommend to start early in your planning to alleviate the pressure! You might want to think about encouraging your child to start writing their “thank you” notes in advance – at least to those you know will be attending. I’ve been thinking about my kid’s montages since they were born and made sure to get just the right picture at every stage of their childhood which was a big help when pulling pictures. It can all be very overwhelming, but it’s a milestone event you will never forget.”
