    Note to young friends attending a Bar/Bat Mitzvah

    We hope that you will be able to join Rachel on her special day. The Bat Mitzvah Service begins at 11:00 a.m. at Temple Sinai, 5505 Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill. Usually friends sit together in the sanctuary so it should be easy to find someone to join. Please dress in appropriate Temple/Church attire. Girls should wear skirts or dresses and boys should wear khakis or dress pants and a nice shirt.

    The service will end around 12:15 P.m. and will be followed by a light luncheon. Your parents should plan to pick you up at the temple around 12:45 p.m.
    The party begins at 7:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Country Club located at 4500 Hillcrest Drive in Oakland. There will be a DJ and a buffet dinner for Amy's friends and a seated dinner for the adults. The party ends at 11:00 p.m., so have your parents plan to be there to pick you up by 10:45 p.m. Dress appropriately for an evening event, meaning no jeans.

    Please call if you have any questions 555-555-1212
    We hope you will be able to join us!
