When life’s roller coaster throws you for a loop: KEEP CALM and PLAN ON

I started planning my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah a little over two years ago.  After all, planning is what I do and expectations were high.   I chose a venue, lined up my vendors, my daughter started her Mitzvah project;  we were all looking forward to celebrating her Bat Mitzvah on labour day weekend.

Very late one July evening I received an email from the owner of the venue that I had booked over two years ago, saying they had a devastating fire.  We could no longer have our Bat Mitzvah at our planned location.  I was six weeks away from the Bat Mitzvah and I had over 200 guests invited, what was I going to do?  Not only did I lose my venue but I also lost my deposit.  … Read More »

A Lovely Recent Thank You Note!

9th November

This is a letter I received this morning from my client after working their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah last night, what a great way to start the day feeling thankful 🙂


We wanted to say thank you for helping us make yesterday so special for Mia and our family.

Your guidance, advice and cool demeanor was invaluable in getting us to the Bat Mitzvah day and through the evening. We have already recommended you to one friend and will absolutely do so to anyone who else we know.

We will definitely be calling you for Noa’s Bat Mitzvah. Luckily, we have four years to try to figure out a way to top or at least match the special night we had yesterday.

Thank you for everything it was really a pleasure working with you.

All the best,

Jon and Shlomit

Advice on planning your Bar or Bat Mizvah in Toronto

21st March

Over the past few years I have spent a lot of time meeting with parents who are about to embark on a very special journey of planning their son’s or daughter’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah. A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an important milestone as well as a significant tradition in the Jewish religion. From the feedback that I have received from my Toronto clients the most stressful part of the planning process is the financial commitment that parents have to invest for this one day. My best advice that I can give anyone who is starting this planning process is to talk to their children first, sit down and have a quiet conversation with that child alone.  Ask them what they want to do, get them involved in the process and ask them whether they want a dance party or a … Read More »
