Drive-By Bat Mitzvah Temple Parade

Like many other Bar Bat Mitzvah planning families across the country, the Gerstels had planned a traditional party at a local venue for their daughter Gabby’s Bat Mitzvah. Gabby’s dad, Alan, is an ER doctor and on the front lines so they needed to adjust their plans. With COVID and cold weather, they decided to invite a few friends and family members to the service followed by a mask safe, drive-by at their temple in Livingston, New Jersey.

Mom Diana tells Mitzvah Market, “Despite the adjustments for Covid, Gabby’s Bat Mitzvah was beautiful and joyous, and the drive-by celebration was a blast.”

They had also planned for a balloon backdrop for photos but the forecast called for a 100% chance of rain, so once again, they adapted. Despite the rain and snow and covid related disappointments, they had a wonderful day!
