B’not Mitzvah For Family and Friends Who Just Love 2 Party

B’not Mitzvah For Family and Friends Who Just Love 2 Party

The Garelick family of Melville, New York celebrated the B’not Mitzvah of their daughters’ Alexandra (Lexi) and Julia. Having a Bat Mitzvah is always significant, but celebrating your big day with your sister by your side makes it much more special! For this chic celebration, the family used both girls initials “J” and “L” in the tagline and as the theme for a perfect night for family and friends who Just Love 2 Party.

Double the meaning, double the fun!

B’not Mitzvah Project

For Lexi and Julia’s Mitzvah Project, they worked with Ruff House Rescue, an organization on Long Island that rescues homeless pets suffering from abuse, neglect, and indifference. People sent donations and also dropped off dog beds, food, treats, etc. The family is still receiving donations and plans to bring them over soon. Also, the girls are helping to build a teen program to do community service for West Hills Torah Center. In fact, they are putting together an evening to sell baked goods with proceeds from this event going to a temple in St. Martin to help rebuild their community after Hurricane Irma. 

 

Advice from Mom Mandi

“I’m typically a last minute person, but don’t wait to begin the planning process until the final months when it comes to this milestone event. Start gaining inspiration and ideas a year before your Mitzvah date from informative websites like Mitzvah Market, Pinterest, and Facebook and save them in a folder or an album. Make sure your kids feel like they’ve played an integral role in the decision process from venue choice and DJ to decor, floral and lighting design. It truly is more fun when you involve them! Try to make their dreams come true without breaking the bank! They will love the final product and feel much more accomplished. Envision how you want your family and friends to feel in the room, surrounded by love. Take a deep breath and a quiet moment to thank G-d and anyone else for the good fortune and blessing of having a child reach Mitzvah age. Make a promise to yourself and your kids that if anything goes wrong, you’ll all still have the time of your lives. Enjoy every precious minute of it and remember what it’s all about! I could not have planned and organized a more amazing evening without reading the many features from Mitzvah Market and going to the Celebrate! Showcases. I appreciate what Mitzvah Market is doing and can’t wait to help other moms in the same position!”
