Bar Mitzvah Life: Better On The Ice

Bar Mitzvah Life: Better On The Ice

Life is Better on the Ice for Bar Mitzvah boy Jordan Freund. An avid ice hockey player since age seven, Jordan’s Bar Mitzvah theme brought to life his favorite aspects of the game. From a hockey rink dance floor, complete with penalty boxes, to NHL ticket place cards and hockey jerseys galore, this party had it all. Following a service at Community Synagogue of Rye in Rye, New York, Jordan’s guests gathered at LIFE, the place to be in Ardsley, New York where they were treated to a night of non-stop action on and off the dance floor.

Mitzvah Advice

“I wasn’t sure if I really needed a planner as I enjoy the planning process myself and the venue came with a planner,” says Mitzvah Mom Jackie. “But I’m thrilled that I did decide to hire my own planner, especially when it got closer to the event. She helped with so many crazy details (timeline, tipping, transportation etc…) that I hadn’t realized would make the last few weeks so incredibly busy. I was able to relax the day of the party knowing she was there and not worry about a thing!”

Mitzvah Project

Jordan sold snacks at his synagogue each week before Hebrew school. He donated the proceeds to the ASPCA as he loves animals. The family has a dog and two cats of their own.
