An Honest Mitzvah Invitation


It is with great stress, emotional and physical fatigue and incredible financial sacrifice beyond comprehension, that we invite you to join us as our wonderful son

Jacob Adam

is called to the Torah as a Bar Mitzvah.

Saturday, May 12th - (yes we realize its Mother's Day Weekend)
Temple Israel
14 Coleytown Road
Westport, Connecticut 06880

at the ungodly hour of 9:00 AM even though you don't really need to be there until 10:20am to catch the real action.

If you make it through the 3-hour service, please skip the kiddush (its
just cookies and cake) and join us instead for an overly large and ostentatious Kosher (my husband's idea) evening meal, which starts at 7:00 PM (not 8:00 PM or you will miss out on the 2000 canapes).

Birchwood Country Club
25 Kings Hwy S
Westport, CT 06880
(which we had to join just for this event and you would not believe the initiation fees)

You will be in the presence of lots of boisterous and expensive entertainment and 60 to 70 unruly pre-teens wearing expensive dresses, funny hats, fake bling and brand new white ankle socks... as well as 80-100 middle aged+ adults, some balding, some with bad toupees, most will be professionally coiffed, designer attire galore, lots of REAL bling, and most "tootsed" to the nines. At least 1/3 will be hormonally challenged and some will act stupid while under the influence. Some will not even know where or who they are. Some will complain about the food. Blah Blah Blah.

Please have the courtesy of showing up if you RSVP that you are attending, or you will be billed for $210.00 a plate if you are a no-show. Please RSVP as soon as you get this and not a day before the cut-off date. I can't take the stress.

The gift of choice is either green, or contains a routing and account number. "Off the top of your head" gifts and Gift Cards are a waste of your time and ours.

Hope you can make it!

Lisa and David Miller

Dress: Black Tie optional
Theme: 007 James Bond

BYO yarmulke. I don't have the strength.

Mormile Florists and Event Decorators

Where Did You Get Those Beautiful Flowers?

That is the question most commonly asked when Mormile Florists & Event Decorators provides the floral decor for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. For nearly 100 years (wow!) and 4 generations of designers, this family-owned business has been importing beautiful and desirable flowers from every corner of the world.

TIP: Mormile owner Bill Kakis has some great advice as to when you should start looking for flowers for your Mitzvah. He says, "A year before the event is a good time to start thinking about flowers because you can get to 'feel' the season as well as the flower availability." (We love that!) Bill adds: "Of course, starting as early as when the date and locations have been selected is also appropriate."
