We started the day at Temple Beth Israel in Pomona. I have been fortunate to have photographed dozens of Bar and Bat Mitzvah's at this Temple. I truly admire the maturity of these kids and the way they look at the world. Dani is a special girl, she contributes to her family, is a great friend, love to sing and perform and she is a great soccer player. She cares about our community and wants to better the world. It has been a joy watching Dani and her sister Sami grow up and be a part of their special Mitzvah services and parties. Here are a few photographs from the day.
Rabbi Kupetz an Cantor Paul with Dani.
Here is Dani holding the Torah.
After the Bat Mitzvah services, a musical themed party was being created by the talented Allen from Rhythm Entertainment and The Avalon Room at the Pomona Fairplex.
The Horah is an exciting ritual of Mitzvah parties.
Dani had special dances with her Father and Grandfather.
The kids had fun activities to chose from at the party at the Pomona Fairplex Avalon Room.
The ladies got to pick out fancy eyelashes. They loved it.
Guests were thrilled to star in their own rock video which they got to take home on DVD.
Caricatures were the hit of the Dani's Bat Mitzvah Party. I think all of the guests had one done.
Dani had a blast at her party.
The kids loved the fun props that Rhythm Entertainment handed out during the party.
I can't wait to see the video that Steve Moses of Vantage Point Productions creates. Steve is always amazing to work with.
