Gratitude Stories: Frayda’s Bat Mitzvah
The Bat Mizvah is an important right of passage for people of the Jewish faith. It celebrates a young person’s transition from childhood to religious maturity.
It is also a unique opportunity to re-create Madonna choreography in front of all your friends…
But most importantly, it is a time to celebrate who someone is and what they mean to their community.
Bar/Bat Mitvah videos have become ingrained in Jewish culture and we’re so excited to see more people reaching out to use Tribute for these special occasions.
We especially loved Amy’s video for her daughter Fryda. Her grandma is quite possibly the cutest human being we’ve ever seen and we love seeing young people sharing their appreciation and affection so openly.
Why did you want to give Frayda a Tribute?
Amy (mom): I created a Tribute for my son Simon a few months back and I thought it would be a great idea to surprise Frayda with one at her Bat Mitzvah. And what a great idea it was.
What is your favorite thing about Frayda?
Amy: Frayda is my 13-year-old daughter who is doing so many incredible things already. I love everything about her. She always brightens my life with all of her energy and smiles. She is very theatrical and dramatic which always make for an exciting time around the house.
What were the circumstances when Frayda received her Tribute?
Amy: We decided that we would surprise Frayda with the Tribute during her Bat Mitzvah lunch while 250 of her friends/relatives watched along with her. Everyone at the party was amazed by the quality and warm feeling that covered the room. It was such a special moment.
How did Frayda react to the video?
She was completely surprised and loved hearing all of the positive things people said about her. She cried the whole way through it. It was really special for me to watch all of these beautiful people say such nice things about my daughter. She felt so much love and support which couldn’t have come at a more perfect time as she transitions into her mid-teenage years.
As always, if you know someone special deserves to be celebrated, we’re here to help you make it happen.
