A B’nai Mitzvah For Two Cousins Who Know How to “LIVE BIG”

A B’nai Mitzvah For Two Cousins Who Know How to “LIVE BIG”

Growing up as some of the youngest cousins in a close knit family, Brett Nussbaum and Lindsey Phillips have shared a lot of memories over the years. From holidays and birthdays to summer camp, they have a special bond. When their moms, sisters Tracey and Amy, suggested a B’nai Mitzvah for the pair, they were totally on board. “Originally we were going to plan a destination vacation with our extended family,” says mom Tracey. “But Brett and Lindsey really wanted an actual celebration together.” The planning process was easier than expected. Both moms had already planned Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations for their older children (see Carlee Nussbaum’s spotlight here), and Brett and Lindsey were pretty laid back about the process. “They both gave their input, but in the end it was our final decision,” says Tracey.
