Advance praise for The Ultimate Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebration Book: A Guide to Inspiring Ceremonies and Joyous Festivities

"It's never easy to balance the search for meaning and the search for the perfect bar mitzvah caterer. By taking each search seriously-but not too seriously-Cohen and Weinrott have created a practical and thoughtful primer for families facing all the spiritual, esthetic, culinary and financial challenges (as well as the vexing decision about whether to serve those little cakes with the kid's name iced on them.)"
- Stephen Fried, author of The New Rabbi

"For many years, most celebrations of becoming bar and bat mitzvah have either treated the religious ceremony as merely an excuse for an ostentatious party, or treated the party as a grubby intrusion on a religious event. With great artistry, Cohen and Weinrott show how families can take both the synagogue ceremony and the public party as opportunities for spiritual transformation, ethical growth and joyful communal coming-together."
- Rabbi Arthur O. Waskow, author of Seasons of Our Joy: A Handbook of Jewish Festivals, and co-author, with Rabbi Phyllis O. Berman, of A Time For Every Purpose Under Heaven: The Jewish Life Spiral as a Spiritual Path

"Cookbook author and well-known Jewish cooking expert Jayne Cohen and party planner Lori Weinrott teamed up to write The Ultimate Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebration Book. Their expertise can help families plan an event that's both meaningful and memorable - delicious food included."
