Cambria and Rachel’s b’not mitzvah at Congregation Micah in Nashville, followed by a luncheon and party at W.O. Smith Music School, was such a joyful, fun day filled with family, friends, food, dancing – and a tea bar!
Both girls are really into blending their own custom teas (no Lipton tea bags over here – they mix real, fresh ingredients such as cardamom and lavender to create their own blends!), so they had a beautiful display of teas laid out for guests to create their own tea to take home. It was a big hit and such a creative way to personalize the party to reflect Cambria and Rachel’s interests.
The day started at Congregation Micah for the service, where the twin girls took turns leading the Torah reading. Afterward, the Linn family and friends celebrated at W.O. Smith Music School in downtown Nashville with food, drinks and dancing. This just happened to be Cambria and Rachel’s birthday, so they each blew out candles on their own cake, and their dad danced a special dance with each of them – the chicken dance and the macarena. 🙂
In a nutshell, a bat mitzvah is the time when a Jewish girl becomes an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community. It means she is ready to accept life’s opportunities and responsibilities, and it’s usually marked with a sacred ceremony followed by a celebration.
Here’s a little sneak peek of photos from Cambria and Rachel’s big day, with more photos to come. Mazel Tov to the Linn family! 🙂
