The Lorry Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Lorry Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Lorry family from Wynnewood, Pennsylvania wanted to have a fun “kids party” to celebrate their son Benjamin’s Bar Mitzvah. They succeeded and we know this spotlight will inspire many of our readers to do the same!

Ben’s Bar Mitzvah service was followed by a beautiful Kiddush luncheon at the Villanova Conference Center and Hotel in Villanova, Pennsylvania. In the evening, the” kids party” was held at the Kaiserman JCC in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.

All party photography was done by Ann Marie Casey Photography and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

The Villanova Conference Center and Hotel was the site for the Kiddush luncheon for family and close friends after Ben’s service. The theme was easy to choose, Ben loves soccer.

Mitzvah Mom Liz told this to Mitzvah Market and we had to share: “I have to tell you that once the night was over, and we were back at home, I asked my son how he liked his Bar Mitzvah and he told me, ‘Mom, it was the best Bar Mitzvah ever!’  I can’t tell you what that meant to me.  I will never forget that day and night.”
