Tent “Pop In” for Allie’s Silver Linings Bat Mitzvah Celebration

The Glidewell family celebrated their daughter Allie’s Bat Mitzvah from their home in St. Louis in February, 2021. The service was zoomed from their garage with 13 family members present plus a tent was installed off the garage to socially distance the service guests, zoom coordinator and photographer.

Following the service, they held a tent “pop in” throughout the afternoon and evening for close friends, family and all of Allie’s friends. The tent was partially open, heated and decorated with her theme “Allie’s Silver Linings.

Video Gate Studio was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom.

Mom to Mom Advice from Darcy

“There’s no wrong way to do a Mitzvah these days! The silver lining of a virtual service was that so many out of town family and friends could join us. Send your guests something so they feel a part of your celebration. Whether that is a physical invitation, a request to send a video or take a photo while on the zoom or a treat or coffee mug. For virtual services, sound and lighting make all the difference. Make sure your guests can hear and see everything your child has worked so hard to accomplish.”

Mitzvah Project

Allison has always wanted to work with the senior community in St. Louis. Because of Covid, in person projects were limited so our Temple connected her with a pen pal. They write letters, talk on the phone and have had a couple of socially distanced meetings. It has brought so much joy to each of their lives, especially during Covid. Allie has also raised funds that will help off set programming costs for many seniors that want to participate in virtual and in person programs but are unable to do so because of costs.
