The Max Rudolph Bar Mitzvah Spotlight

The Max Rudolph Bar Mitzvah Spotlight


Max Rudolph is from Jericho, New York and celebrated his Bar Mitzvah at home on June 4, 2011, followed by a luncheon under a tent in his backyard.

According to his family, having a small, intimate ceremony and gathering at their house allowed close friends and family to truly focus on the real meaning of Bar Mitzvah. They said, “Max did an outstanding job and enjoyed his Best Day Ever!”







Max’s Dad Jess is very creative and produced his Bar Mitzvah video invitation himself!

The service was led by Max, who was tutored during the year and assisted on Saturday morning by Mrs. Cheryl Green.
