Mazel Tov Malachi!

Our A-Team for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs in Chicago recently partied with Malachi and his family and friends at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in River North

Malachi did an awesome job reciting his Torah portions earlier in the day at Emanuel Congregation. As a result, some celebrations were definitely in order!  As the guests arrived, we played several fun games with Malachi and his friends, and the adults enjoy some time during a cocktail hour in the next room. There was some very fierce, but still friendly competition with the hula-hoop game and the scavenger hunt was something that should be remembered for years to come.

As guests entered the main celebration are, DJ Paul and DJ Terry opened the dance floor for them. Dancer Jeffrey and Dancer Jamie led the group by sharing a few follow-along dance moves. Malachi welcomed all the guests, and his brothers and parents gave excellent speeches. While the parents partook in dinner, we played a game of huggy-bear with the kids. If you’re not familiar with that game, it’s a great way to break the ice among kids. It’s similar to musical chairs, but with hugs. You should definitely Google it if you’re not familiar with it.  

Once everyone was fed, the dance floor kicked off again with the Hora! Malachi was lifted in the chair by some guests…including his mom! 

The night continued with Malachi’s awesome photo montage and a nail-biting game of Coke-and-Pepsi. When we weren’t playing games, Malachi, his friends, and the adults were on the dance floor the entire night!

Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah

Just recently my team and I (Paul) were able to work with the Rabbi of Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard to provide DJ and Entertainment Services for her son’s Bar Mitzvah at Pinstripes in Oakbrook, IL.   This was a very special Bar Mitzvah for me to work since I’ve known the Rabbi ever since she came to begin working at Congregation Etz Chaim, and I’ve known Jacob since he was born. 

We had a blast playing games with the teens such as huggy bear, a hula hoop contest, musical chairs, the limbo, and the newspaper game which kept everyone up and on the dance floor the entire time. Jacob and his family invited a really great crowd who kept us busy dancing the entire afternoon showing everyone (adults included) some new dances. We also had a video montage for Jacob which showed pictures of him, his family, and his friends throughout his life.
