Hotel Weekend Bar Mitzvah
Can anyone give me information on a ballpark cost (per person) of a weekend bar mitzvah at a hotel in the NY/NJ/CT area.
What is included in the cost? How does one set up for the tefillah? Is it bring your own Torah?
Can you recommend a hotel that you, or someone you know, has used and were happy with?
The Ramada in East Hanover, Crown Plaza in Fairfiled and the Hilton in Woodlcliff NJ are all great options too....very kosher/Shabbas friendly and easy to work with.
***I have no ties financial ties to any of the above, but CHOW would want me to disclose here that I am a kosher caterer as well as a chef and foodie***
I went to a weekend bar-mitzvah at the Stamford Marriott about a year and a half ago. There were rooms set up for tefillot and meals. The family rented a Torah. It was a lovely venue with good food. I don't remember the caterer's name, but I know that the hotel has experience working with kosher caterers (been to a wedding there as well).
Matza Fun did a very nice job at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch on Pesach. I think that they may be able to work with you to cater events there all year round. They have advertised Shabbos events in the past. Mazel tov.
