Mitzvah Inspire: Book Worm Mitzvah

Save the Day Events, a boutique event planning firm, and owner Penny Rabinowitz, transformed the ballroom of Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood, New Jersey.

The Bar Mitzvah boy, an avid reader, had a reception that celebrated his love of reading.

His special day was built around a vintage library with details that we just can’t be quiet about!

Books and other library paraphernalia were included in the invitations, decor, place cards and centerpieces.

The invitation and RSVP card from Paper Works and Events was a card catalog book card and the guest could check off, “Will come and return on time” or “Sorry we’re booked”

The lining of the envelope was an image of books on a shelf

The grey velvet kippot were placed in a library card catalog drawer

The place cards were bookmarks

Adult place cards

The temple ballroom transformed into a vintage library

The amazing bar with book shelves and authentic design elements

Books “written by” the Bar Mitzvah boy lined the shelves behind the bar

The adult table centerpieces were chic and vintage

The kids had a table runner from one of the Bar Mitzvah boy’s favorite books from the Harry Potter series

The sign-in was of the Bar Mitzvah boy reading…of course!


We thank Save the Day Events for sharing this wonderful Bar Mitzvah with our Mitzvah Market readers.
