Samantha had an amazing Bat Mitzvah on Valentines day yesterday at the Metropolitan Bldg in Long Island city NY. Expressway Music provided the Music and entertainment and Amira from Sebastian’s catering catered and coordinaed the entire bat mitzvah with spectacular results. The following are some photos of the Bat Mitzvah.

The following is a lovely letter we received two days after the Bat Mitzvah:

Subject: Thank You!
This email is at least 24 hours overdue, but we were almost as wiped out yesterday as we were when we got home from the party Saturday evening, and this is the first time since Saturday that I feel as though my brain is functioning sufficiently well to send you this email.
We are all so incredibly grateful for the job you two, Jesse and the motivators did in making the party SO MUCH FUN. We have been innundated with calls and emails since Saturday night telling us how super everything was, and you were signaled out all the time for special mention. Everything you did was right, from the tone you set with the kids and the way you interracted with them, to Jesse’s music and the way he invited guests (including, it seemed, the entire boy contingent) to play with him, to your terrific mix of music, with current stuff blended in totally with older favorites. The hora was the right length and in the right spot, the raffle was well done. The flow of things felt really, really good.
Mostly, though, thank you for how lovely you were with our daughters. Samantha and Charlotte, who, as I think you figured out, are very different, both enjoyed their time with you and felt incredibly comfortable with you. That’s a pretty significant fact for us. They both had such a good time, as did all of their friends and all of us, and we know that this is in large part due to your work and skill and the simply terrific job you did. We will miss being in touch with you, but Charlotte’s bat mitzvah will be here before we know it!!
Thanks again, we really are so grateful.
Cindy and Matt
