A National Convention Themed Bar Mitzvah

A National Convention Themed Bar Mitzvah

The Weisz family observed their son, Andrew’s Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth El in West Palm Beach, Florida. A celebration was held in the evening at the nearby Club at Ibis. Falling three weeks prior to the presidential election of 2016, the family opted for a mock political convention theme.

Starting with the invitation and RSVP Ballot to the candidate cut-outs and the official Bar Mitzvah Party Voting Booth, Andrew’s “2016 Bar Mitzvah Party National Convention” (as it was billed) was an uncontested winner.

Andrew’s Mitzvah Projects


Andrew spent the summer working on behalf of three different charitable organizations. The Alliance for Kids is a group that provides support services for hospitalized children. Andrew was a camp counselor for Chai Lifeline, a program that assists families with mentally or physically challenged children. He also became a in-home “friendly visitor” at the home of an area Holocaust survivor on behalf of Jewish Family and Children’s Service. “It was a lot of work while other kids were having a fun summer,” said Andrew, “but it made me feel good to be able to help kids and older people this way.
