Day 35 – SUNDAY 22nd February 2015
Wow! What a party!
The Barmitzvah party was held at the hotel where we are staying so it was very convenient considering the still very cold (at least for us!) and now wet and windy weather.
The evening started off with a massive bang – the MC got all the guests up on the dance floor for a traditional dance and sing-a-long. It certainly set the atmosphere for the rest of the night.
Speeches and presentations were given by friends and family members including a video from Benjamin’s ex school friends from the US.
The band was really excellent and included a sax and an electric violin even a pair of dance leaders who kept the children and most of the adults on the dance floor doing line dancing. Extensive use was made of sophisticated electronic equipment including a terrific LED dance floor.
Even the food, which was prepared by outside kosher caterers, was excellent.
The whole event was professionally photographed and video recorded (links will be added when available).
The whole evening was full of love and good will and we really enjoyed it.
Here are a few photos that I managed to take. The professional ones will be posted soon.
