The Blumberg Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Blumberg Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight


The Blumberg family celebrated daughter Brooke’s Bat Mitzvah on November 16, 2013, with a morning service at South Huntington Jewish Center in Melville, New York, and an evening reception at Pine Hollow Country Club in East Norwich, New York.

Pictured L-R: Dad Steve, Bat Mitzvah girl Brooke, Mom Stacey and Sister Emma.

Hi Tech Photography Events was the photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the end of the spotlight.





The sophisticated purple and white invitation was from Sealed With A Kiss (SWAK).

Using purple and white for the color scheme, Hi Tech Photography Events completed the look of the ballroom with purple up-lighting and over-sized photos of Brooke in purple frames. Brooke’s name in Gobo lights looked beautiful at the entrance when guests arrived!

For an extra special treat, New York City’s popular crew from Wafles & Dinges were there to serve their famous waffles. It was a big hit with the kids and the adults!

 Instead of one Mitzvah Project during the Bar Bat Mitzvah year, the Blumberg’s temple has the 6th grade children participate in three “chesed” or kindness projects.

Brooke’s projects included weekly visits to play with a 6-year-old boy with autism at his home through a program called Ariella’s Friendship Circle. She also participated in the synagogue’s “Souperbowl Sunday” during which they prepared and delivered sandwiches to local shelters, and participation in UJA-Staples “Supplies for Success,” purchasing items to fill backpacks for students in need.




Advice from Mom Stacey:
“As for “Mom to Mom” advice, I started my planning well in advance in order to make the few months before the Bat Mitzvah less stressful. This allowed us to truly enjoy the excitement of the time leading up to our celebration.”
