Harry Potter Themed Bar Mitzvah

Adar Gurvitch tells Mitzvah Market, “My son Dylan learned how to go with the flow when it came to his Bar Mitzvah. Snowstorm, hospitalizations, Rabbi out with Covid…you name it, it happened!” They finally were able to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah with a service at Temple Israel Center White Plains. They had 40 guests followed by a family zoom where they screened his montage for the first time. Included was a “cameo” by a Harry Potter actor which Dylan loved since this was the themed of his Bar Mitzvah.

The day of their scheduled “drive by” celebration there was a snow storm and it was postponed for 2 weeks but when it finally took place, they had a doughnut truck, fire pits and balloon decor! 

Rebecca Weiss Photography took the photos and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom.

Mom to Mom Advice

“Realize that even though it may not be the celebration you envisioned, it is still a special and huge milestone. Celebrate it in safe ways. Find ways to add personal special touches. And everyone has been impacted by Covid- imagine the stories these kids will be telling their children about their pandemic Mitzvahs!”
