Our family Simchas

We are including some information about our family simchas with some links that helped us.

Ronin's Bar Mitzvah

My son Ronin was called to become a Bar Mitzvah on Jan. 19, 2002.

We are very proud of him!

In honor of his Bar Mitzvah, I am posting some information and ideas that I hope will help other Bar or Bat Mitzvah family members plan their own simcha.
This information will also help people plan weddings.

Check out the links on this page for where to buy imprinted kippot, tallits etc.

Also see:

Chadis Crafts Fun Pages for ideas on making your own tallit, clay covered yads, center pieces, embossing your invitations etc and more!

See to see pictures of a tallit I beaded and trimmed for myself.

Ronin was very lucky.
He received two tallit as presents.
A lovely traditional one from my Dad's Rabbi in Chelsea, MA. Plus one from my Dad which Ronin picked out himself at Afikomen-Jewish Books and Art in Berkely CA.
It is an unusual hand painted silk.

Ronin in our back yard the spring after his Bar Mitzvah.

Finally found the designer's web page. Silk Bijoux.
They have even more than pictured online.

I crocheted a thick cotton Jerusalem scene kippah to match.

(No don't ask to buy one like this! An act of love...Too much work and sore hand!

These are the great suede embossed kippot I ordered for our guests at our son's bar mitvzah!

Embossed with music notes.
I got them from
They were imprinted inside in gold with his name and bar mitzvah date.
They were a huge hit!

I made many hand crocheted kippot as gifts for all of the ladies in our family.
Plus many of the men that needed larger size kippot.

All of the guests at our evening party rolled beeswax Havdallah candles I had precut for our Havdallah service.
See Chadis Crafts fun pages for directions.

Also many guests made beaded bracelets and key chains while some others were singing Kareoke.

I bought the shalom beads, basketballs and butterfly ceramic beads from Judiaca 1-800-dreidel

I also bought some large plastic star picks, bar mitzvah flag picks and star cup cake cups from here.
See to see pictures of these.

Also on this page are pictures of 24 challah covers he painted and donated to use as center pieces by our temple. He used fabric paint using a foot pump and blow pens plus glitter fabric paint.

For the evening party, instead of a candle lighting ceremony.
We had a family tree ceremony.

Lauree at sent me a few presents for Ronin.

10 gold and silver lucite leaves!

She knew I was too cheap/broke to buy the full gorgeous tree set she sells. She sent me the leaves to see what craft I would come up with! The flash did not work well but here is the first picture.

I bought a gold and silver wooden framed mirror. Micah (age 10) and I (forget my age!) used stain glass paint and gold/plastic stain glass window tape to make a family tree.

We listed with markers: both sets of Ronin's grandparents, his father and his siblings, me, plus his brother and his first cousins.

We attached with double stick tape.
It came out great!

Full directions will be posted on Chadis Crafts Fun Pages soon.

Lauree also sent a gold on blue metal magnet with Ronin's bar mitzvah date. What a great idea that would have been about a year ago to send out to future guests to hold the date open! We emailed many to hold that date but many relatives still are not on the net!

Micah's Bar Mitzvah
Aug. 7, 2004

Micah and Eileen

Micah and Eileen (mostly Micah) wove this wool tallit at the United Jewish Community Center of the Virginia Peninsula in the summer of 2001 when Micah was only 11.

Micah is now taller than his mom!
See picture below.
I finally decided to have the attarah machine embrodiered as embrodiery is hurting my hands.

Eileen, Micah and Steve wearing their new tallitot.
Eileen wove hers and Steve's.
NO! She will not be making tallit for sale.
