The Gordon family from Allentown, Pennsylvania celebrated the Bat Mitzvah of daughter Amanda at Temple Beth El on November 12, 2016. There was a party in her honor at Steel Stacks, an event space in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The winter wonderland themed party was sophisticated and elegant with lots of special touches, even snow falling on the dance floor!

Advice From Mom Ellen
“Your planning should start very early. Being well organized is definitely the key to staying sane throughout the entire planning process. On the day of the event, make sure to look around and take it all in as it goes by in a flash. Have fun and enjoy every minute.”
Amanda’s Mitzvah project was called “Pretty Our Playground.” She chose the project of beautifying the Jewish Community Center of the Lehigh Valley in Allentown, PA. I was very excited to spend my time in making this playground a special place for the current and future preschoolers at the JCC to play on and enjoy using. Amanda, along with friends and family, cleaned up, mulched, weeded, raked and created a toy wall for the JCC playground where Amanda went to preschool. She wanted to give back to a place that was so important to her.
