Jordan’s Bar Mitzvah


Jordan and his family are from New Jersey – United States and visited Israel to celebarate his Bar Mitzvah.  They all stayed at the iconic King David Hotel in Jersualem where we have filmed many events. We met Jordan and his parents Regina and Eric a couple of days before the big day.

It was going to be a very intimate function and our mission was to make it most memorable.

After having breakfast Jordan and his guests took a coach to the Kotel (the Western Wall). Jordan was welcomed with local drummers and shofar blowers. They were escorted to the tunnels for a most spiritual and educational ceremony. Jordan was honoured to write some letters in the Torah and put on Tephilim.  Everyone then made their way to the Kotel for the morning service. Jordan was then called up to the Torah followed by an emotional ending. The family walked back via the old city of Jersualem and Mamilla Arcade.

Arriving at The King David Hotel, the guests were treated to a fine dining lunch.

Hi Arnold,
The album arrived today and it is gorgeous! Jordan loves it! Hi Limor and Arnold,
We received the video and it is just wonderful! It was great to relive the day and see events that we may have missed during the day!

We can’t wait to share the video on Thanksgiving Day with some family.
Thanks again for capturing the beauty and spirit of Jordan’s bar mitzvah.
