Off To An Amazing Start
Moishy lands in JFK Airport and is whisked away in a waiting luxury sprinter to the East 34th Street Heliport. He boards a private helicopter and as they fly over the Statue of Liberty, Moishy is serenaded by celebrity singers Benny Freidman and Avi Marcus, along with Mendy Hershkowitz of the Sababa Band on keyboard.
After an exhilarating ride, the helicopter lands at a private estate. Moishy is escorted to a horse drawn carriage and arrives in pomp and style to his exclusive Bar Mitzvah event. The festivities kick off with a special Tefillin wrapping ceremony as Moishy puts tefillin on Jewish Navy Seal, Jeff Williams; his first time since his Bar Mitzvah. The events are further enhanced and uplifted by famous singers Benny Friedman, Avi Markus, Shmuly Unger, Lipa Schmeltzer, Yoily Lebowitz, Cantor Zvi Lieder and child soloist Yanky Green.
A Meaningful Moment at the Mall
The meaningful moments continue with Moishy traveling to the brand-new American Dream Mall in Secaucus, New Jersey. CEO Don Ghermazian, looks on as Moishy hangs the Mezuzah to mark the completion of this incredible Jewish entertainment destination. The Mezuzah will stand as constant reminder and merit of his beloved parents, OBM.
A Time for Prayer
The next morning, the entourage heads into the city to visit Lubavitch headquarters. At the famous 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, Moishy davens shacharis in the Rebbi’s room and then in a poignant moment, visits Yeshiva Ohel Torah and sits in the classroom his father once sat in as a child.
Take to the Sea
The excitement continues as everyone boards a yacht for a sail down the Hudson River to the accompaniment of the famous Shira Choir. The fun does not end there! Once docked at the Marina, the incredible Dudi Knopfler makes a surprise singing appearance. An ice cream truck is waiting and everyone enjoys a delectable treat. This marks the end of the US portion of the festivities as the entourage travels back to Israel.
Epic Kfar Chabad Celebration
The celebration continues in Kfar Chabad with a larger-than-life event. The A-list entertainment keeps the party rocking. Moishy enters to the heartfelt singing of Avrohom Fried. Simcha Freidman, Zanvil Weinberger, Ahrele Samet, Yishai Ribo, Motti Steinmetz, Srulik Adler, Cantor Leider, Dudi Knopfler and Dudi Kalish bring the house down with their top-notch performances. The joy and excitement rev up the crowd.
A Time-honored Tradition
For thousands of years, Jews have purified in the mikvah. Moishy partakes in this time-honored tradition as a bar mitzvah, dipping in a mikvah in the Old City of Jerusalem. He is escorted by Avraham Fried and the Neshoma Choir.
The Holiest Place on Earth
What better place to mark the transition to manhood than at the Kotel?! Moishy is joined by family, friends and Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Rav Hakotel, as he reads from the Torah for the very first time. Enhancing this moment are singers Avraham Fried, Moshe Weintraub, Yanky Daskal and Pinny Einhorn. In a VIP location overlooking the Kotel, Moishy wraps tefillin on Israeli Navy Seal Eyal Siso of the legendary Shayetet 13 division, former Israeli consul to India.
The Ultimate Surprise Ending
The final leg of Moishy’s epic Bar Mitzvah starts with a gripping Airforce One Experience. Then its on to a top-secret, surprise event at MetLife Stadium, together with a group of orphans from Israel. The arena is all theirs and after a rousing welcome from superpower Rabbi YY Jacobson, Moishy wraps tefillin on Navy Seal Adam Weiner and makes a siyum for the very first time as a bar mitzvah. Excitement is literally in the air as Lipa Shmeltzer makes an appearance – in a helicopter hovering above the stadium! An extravagant, all-in breakfast buffet is elevated by entertainers Beri Webber, Shea Berko and Levy Falkowitz.
