Brooklyn Bar Mitzvah Fun!

This Brooklyn Bar Mitzvah was a special and FUN event for the entire family! Capturing the energy was photographer Jordan Rathkopf. Ceremony, dinner, and afterparty were help at Deity Events in NYC. Catering was done in-house featuring seared yellowfin tuna, lamb burgers, and pasta e pepe hors d’oeuvres.  MCing and dancing was provided Lightning Shakes. In addition there was a magician, caricaturist, and photo booth to keep the guests entertained. The evening ended with a candle lighting ceremony, photo montage, and of course, desserts!

Here is what Mom had to say about the big day:

“I don’t usually write reviews and decided to write one for Deity because our experience there was truly fantastic! We had our son’s bar mitzvah there in June 2019 and I cannot say enough positive things about Caio and his team at Deity. It began in our planning phase when Caio spent hours with us going through the menu and the flow of the event. Throughout the entire planning process he was available to answer my questions and alleviate my concerns. He always responded to emails in a timely manner, which I really appreciated. The space at Deity is divided into three floors which allowed the kids to have the ability to party downstairs with the DJ, playing games, dancing, taking pictures in the photo booth or having their caricatures drawn while the adults could socialize and have dinner upstairs, without hearing the emcee shouting into the microphone. Caio was a master at keeping things flowing throughout the night-bringing adults and kids together and apart as we all moved seamlessly from floor to floor, for the service, dinner, dancing, candle lighting, montage and dessert. The adults were able to join the kids downstairs when they wanted to and retreat to calm and quiet upstairs, as desired. The food was delicious! Throughout the night our guests kept commenting about how good the food was and how lovely the folks at Deity were. We had a mixture of people with dietary restrictions and food allergies and Caio and his chef were very accommodating. The last thing I want to say was how mindful Caio and his team were to make sure that kids left safely at the end of the night. His staff remained outside making sure kids were picked up by an adult. I had some reservations, initially, about the space but at the end of the night I can only sing the praise of Caio, his staff and the space, itself! They truly helped to make a very special night into an unforgettable event that our family will cherish forever!”
