Yoel Turns 13: A Manhattan Bar Mitzvah Photojournalist Tells All

A Manhattan bar mitzvah by bar mitzvah photojournalist, Kelly Williams

I recently had the pleasure of being the Manhattan bar mitzvah photojournalist for Yoel’s 13th birthday celebration at the Greenhouse Nightclub.  The afternoon had everything — from a magician to a great sushi buffet.  As Yoel’s celebration proves, the key to a successful bar mitzvah is to have lots and lots of activities for kids and adults alike.  As everyone knows, 13-year olds at an age where physical activities — games, basketball, dancing — are popular and a perfect way to put their high energy to good use.  For this event, the DJs had plenty of activities for the kids which was a great way to tire them out and keep everyone’s attention.  The favors given out to guests were graffiti-inspired photos that guests could personalize at the photo booth.  Enjoy the photos!
