The Grossman Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Grossman Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight


On December 4, 2010 the Grossman Family from Woodbury, New York held their daughter Lindsay’s Bat Mitzvah service and reception at Woodbury Jewish Center.  Since the Bat Mitzvah was during Hanukkah, they were able to light the Menorah candles.

All party photography was done by Neil Bloom.

Pictured L-F: Brother Alex, Mom Nancy, Bat Mitzvah girl Lindsay, Dad David and younger sister Chelsea.

The rest of the Mitzvah vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.








Since Lindsay’s Bat Mitzvah was during Hanukkah, they lit Menorah candles as part of the service which made it extra special.

As you can see below, it was “Lindsay’s Snow Ball” for her celebration! Mitzvah Mom Nancy wanted a surprise for the young guests and together with Danae from Stefan’s Florist, they came up with the idea for a small skating rink! Interactive Entertainment Concepts made it happen and although it took two hours to assemble while guests were enjoying the service and cocktail hour, the kids loved it!

Stefan’s Florist created a beautiful shadowbox containing a picture of Lindsay as a child and her Bat Mitzvah invitation and it was used as her sign-in board!

A candy set-up was provided for all the guests!




Candy anyone?



Mitzvah Mom Nancy has some advice: “Make sure you enjoy spending this special planning time with your child. It is a good opportunity to spend quality 1:1 time so you don’t want to waste it by stressing out. Don’t lose perspective and remember that you want it to me a memorable night for your family, not a circus.”



Stamp - Mitzvah Project Idea
For Lindsay’s Mitzvah project, she and her friend sold gourmet lollipops to raise money for the Jewish National Fund. They raised over $500 to plant trees, improve the water supply, and provide items to the Israeli army.
