The Vatkin Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Vatkin Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Vatkin Family celebrated their son Dylan’s Bar Mitzvah on March 20, 2010 at Restaurant 353 in Mount Kisco, New York.

As you will see, Dylan loves rock n roll – thus the theme!

Their guests were mainly Dylan’s friends with about 40 adults who celebrated in a casual way.

Most of Dylan’s Rock n Roll theme decor and other ideas were the result of his creative Dad – who is a photographer/videographer.

We want to thank them for sharing all their ideas with Mitzvah Market!

Restaurant 353 was the perfect venue for Dylan’s casual celebration.
