When we started our event planning business a few years back, we wanted a name for our new biz that conveyed to the Jewish community who we are and what we could bring to the table. Not your typical, same old mitzvahs, but mitzvahs with a fresh modern approach, using our creativity and love for party planning along with the most up-to-date techniques, ideas and vendors. We decided the name “Modern Mitzvahs” would be the perfect fit.
No doubt these last few months have been very hard on all of us. There have been so many of life’s special moments postponed or cancelled including Bar & Bat Mitzvahs. Whether you were planning a mitzvah in Israel or working with your local synagogue, moving forward as initially planned can be tough. For a Jewish tween who has spent the greater part of the last year studying Hebrew, learning prayers and Torah portions, the idea of having to postpone their special day can be very emotional for them as well. As you know, getting ready for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is no easy task.
We feel our modern approach to Mitzvah planning is especially useful during these times.
The recent trend of the drive-by graduation and birthday parties have really brought a little fun back to life and we have been amazed at all the creativity. So why not try a similar approach to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs?
One of our clients had been planning a July Bat Mitzvah in Israel followed by a celebration at home in August. Plans quickly evolved and the event was converted into a backyard Zoom Mitzvah service followed by a Micro Mitzvah Party. It turned out to be an excellent way to pivot under the circumstances. Immediate family and a few friends attended and additional family and friends from different parts of the country were able to watch a beautiful service with joy as the entire service was streamed live.
This Zoom Micro Mitzvah is just one example of the many options out there. How about a backyard movie night celebration or a field day? As purveyors of the Modern Mitzvah, we are here to help you create a special, memorable event for you, your family and close friends.
