Mitzvah Inspire: A House Divided

Mitzvah Inspire: A House Divided

Zak Levitt and Daniel Stein are best friends from the Orlando area who decided to celebrate their Bar Mitzvah together. They both love college sports and enjoy their friendly rivalry rooting for their favorite teams, The University of Michigan and The Ohio State University.

Coming up with a theme could be a problem for some, but not for these best friends.

The families decided on “A House Divided” as the theme, and with the help of Faye Novick of Just Celebrate! and Raining Roses Productions, they scored on every level.

David Basher of A Magic Moment photographed the event.
