The Gersten Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

Jeans, Jewels & Jerseys! Do we have your attention?

That was the fun theme for family and friends at Tyler Gersten’s Bar Mitzvah. His Mom tells us that ever since Tyler was little, he has worn a jersey to school. Instead of asking what he should wear, he would ask, “Who should I wear to school?”

His Havdallah service was held in 2011 and led by Rabbi Nadia Gold. His celebration followed at Fenway Golf Club in Scarsdale, New York.

Pictured above (L-R): Mom Laurie, Bar Mitzvah boy Tyler, Dad Rich and older sister Hallie.

All party photography was done by Ray Karaman and the additional vendor information is at the bottom of the spotlight.
