    It was so generous of Justin Jacobson, owner of Platinum Events, to provide the entertainment for the party. I must tell you that he went out of his way to get to us. He was in New York for a work trip and his original flight was cancelled, and so arranged to take a super early flight back Thursday morning and then went straight from the airport to his office in Northbrook to get his equipment and back to Anshe Emet JUST FOR US!! Thanks soo much Justin. He was a great MC, and (a little plug for my friend) if any of you are looking for a DJ to MC your next big event, I highly recommend Justin. His contact info is at the end of this email if you should ever need to contact him in the future. Thanks again and happy, healthy New Year!

    Thanks for a great party! Everything ran smoothly and I think everyone had a great time. I know David did and I did too! A mother of one of the girls mother called me and said that her daughter and her friend both said it was the best Bar Mitzvah they had been to!
    Thanks again. You rock!
