Israel-Themed Bat Mitzvah in New York

Whether you go on a Birthright trip or family vacation, being Bar or Bat Mitzvah’d in Israel has become a growing way for Jewish families to connect with their religious roots. The same was true was for Leila, who received her Bat Mitzvah in Israel and decided to celebrate with family and friends when she returned home. Of course, after having returned from such a memorable trip, it only made sense that the party would honor her Israeli experience, with a Milk and Honey themed affair!  The memorable event was planned by Melisa Imberman of The Event of a Lifetime.
