“Let’s Roll With It” Backyard Bar Mitzvah Celebration

Like many families, the Rothschilds had to postpone their son Ben’s Bar Mitzvah due to COVID-19. Their original date of June 6, 2020 was moved to August 29, 2020. The Bar Mitzvah service was scheduled to be outdoors at their Temple but due to Hurricane Laura they made a last minute switch becoming the first indoor service at Westchester Reform Temple since March.

As the Bar Mitzvah date was approaching and with only 2 weeks to go, Mom Elana made the decision to hire Melisa Imberman, The Event of a Lifetime. She tells Mitzvah Market, “I thought I had planned for everything, but Melisa knew exactly what I didn’t think of.” She continues, “Melisa and her team pulled everything together and gave me peace of mind to enjoy the day. I’m not sure what we would have done without the tent, fans and generator. They were always thinking and one step ahead and gave our family exactly what we needed!”

Mitzvah Advice

After postponing to a new date and then being affected by a hurricane, Mom Elana told Mitzvah Market, “We used the phrase “Let’s Roll With It” on the back of the t-shirts. This is the best advice we could give at this time. Nothing will be as planned or expected, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a wonderful, meaningful and loving event!” Most importantly, at the end of the day Ben said, “My Bar Mitzvah was lit!” That’s all that matters!

Mitzvah Project

Ben volunteered at the JCCMW for the past year in the social skills group with a social worker helping out with the children. He also helped out with the monthly teen program where special needs teens get a night out away doing fun activities such as watching a movie or playing board games.
