A Patriots Fan’s Gotham Bar Mitzvah

A Patriots Fan's Gotham Bar Mitzvah


You won’t find too many Patriots fans in the big city choosing an historic church for their Bar
Mitzvah, but this is not your average kid, and this was not your average celebration! Enjoy
reliving Ezra’s Patriots-themed Bar Mitzvah party.


The evening began with a lovely and intimate Havdalah service on the 9th floor of the historic
Riverside Church in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. Guests were led by
the family in a short service accompanied by a solo guitarist from the Noah Solomon Chase Band.

While cocktail hour continued up on the 9th floor, the younger set was invited down to the
magnificent Assembly Hall to get the party started.

Before entering the great hall, guests picked up their specially designed chalkboard escort cards,
which left no doubt the game was on!

Ezra’s friends and young family took their place in the “End Zone”, complete with turf runners and
football centerpieces…

Even the adult tables carried the football theme.

The overall effect was like having this marvelous venue transformed into Gillette Stadium, at least
for one night.

Once inside the “stadium” there was no shortage of things to do…

Instead of a traditional sign-in board, guests got to build a lasting portrait of the bar mitzvah boy,
one sticker at a time…

And guests built wax momentos of their own hands at a very popular booth from Clowns 4 Kids.
