Moving Forward With Mitzvah Planning

Should you continue to plan your Fall/Winter Mitzvah?

Needless to say, planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah during COVID-19 has some very unique challenges. Many families have been left in a sort of a “holding pattern” where they are nervous about signing contracts and putting down deposits due to the uncertainty of what is to come over the next few months.

Feeling Overwhelmed With Mitzvah Planning?

Take These First Steps

Getting started planning your Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration can be quite overwhelming.
