Coney Island Boardwalk Bar Mitzvah Theme

The Ackerman family from Bayside, New York celebrated son Alex’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, March 11, 2017 with a service at Hillcrest Jewish Center in Flushing, New York and a Kiddush luncheon following. There was a party in Alex’s honor the following day, Sunday, March 12, 2017 at East Meadow Jewish Center in East Meadow, New York. Since Alex’s Bar Mitzvah fell on Purim, the family created a carnival and boardwalk atmosphere like Coney Island.

Purim Mitzvah Exit Treats

Since the Bar Mitzvah celebration took place during the Purim holiday, the Ackerman family offered Hamantaschen, grape juice, personalized water bottles and bags for guests to fill with sweet treats from the candy cart.


Mitzvah Project

Alex collected donations of new and gently used costumes which tied in perfectly with the Purim holiday. He collected over 200 costumes which will be donated to charity.

Advice from Mom Lauren

Have fun planning and remember to take a minute to look around the room while the party is in action and take it all in. See how much fun everyone is having especially your Bar/Bat Miztvah child and how all your hard work paid off. Be proud!
