A Bar Mitzvah Celebration in the Driveway!

A Bar Mitzvah Celebration in the Driveway!

Jake Weiner from Maryland celebrated his Bar Mitzvah on his original date, February 20, 2021. Following their service at B’nai Israel Congregation in Rockville, Maryland this family celebrated with a Covid friendly kiddush lunch for 15 in their driveway.

“Although it wasn’t the Bar Mitzvah Jake was originally expecting, the excitement on his face when we got home from the service and saw the surprised graffiti’d theme sign outside our house, was priceless,” mom Emily tells Mitzvah Market.

Christine Ash, from SAVE the DATE, LLC EVENTS helped this family shift many times since COVID hit. Mom Emily tells us they helped figure out the fun sign in board stickers, brainstormed ideas for vendors and couldn’t have pulled this off without them!

Bradley Images was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom.

Mitzvah Project

Jake raised money for a local organization called Food and Friends. He delivered meals for them on Thanksgiving Day. Jake also make sandwiches and cookies for those in need through Small Things Matter.

Mom To Mom Advice from Emily

“Try to make your guests feel part of the day and the celebration. We did this by sending kippahs to our out-of-town family and Bar Mitzvah swag to all the kids (near by and far away). We had our photographer turn our synagogue’s live stream into a Zoom, so our family and friends could leave messages and he could record them watching. This way we have memories of all our relatives. I also recommend that you listen to your child. I had a lot of ideas, but Jake knew what he wanted and the day was about him!”
