PHOTOS & VIDEO: Bar Mitzvah Celebrated At Monmouth Executive Airport

PHOTOS & VIDEO: With dad a commercial pilot and son in flight-school, what more appropriate place to celebrate the boy’s Bar Mitzvah than in an airport.

Family and friends gathered at the Monmouth Executive Airport Sunday evening to celebrate the Bar Mitzvah of Jakee D. (Yoel Yaakov) of Long Branch, NJ, who is an aspiring pilot and currently taking flying lessons.

The Bar Mitzvah guests were treated with a 5-10 minute flight in either a 4-seater Cessna or Piper plane, before sitting down to an elegant meal inside the airport’s Hangar – the first such event ever at the airport.

During the Bar Mitzvah, a T-shirt invitation for the Bar Mitzvah boy’s Israel celebration, was handed out to all the guests. TLS-CCP.

  • Yid says:

    Considering that this is the first ever bar mitzvah celebration at Monmouth Executive Airport, this is an historic event. Perhaps the Guiness Book of World Records should be contacted.

    Wishing the Bar Mitzvah boy to follow in his father’s footsteps!

    “Don’t envy your neighbour !” seems like Miriamg should stop with the LH. The event was first class (no pun intended) just like the bm boy and his family. Ps it was for some the first time on an airplane , consider THAT and everything else a milestone . The bar mitzva is one that will not be forgotten.
