Basketball Theme Bar Mitzvah Party

Bar Mitzvah Ceremony FloridaWhen Justin Havas was getting ready for his bar mitzvah, he expected a quiet luncheon following the service and a dinner party reception with basketball decorations. Who could have guessed the surprises that lay ahead would have the entire day pay homage to his beloved sport, and sure – a little bit to him as well. Photography by: A Magic Moment.
