For the busy professional ready to become the go-to for Jewish weddings and celebrations


Build your reputation and client list by learning how to confidently "speak" Jewish

Your First Lesson Starts Here!


"This course was so informative and valuable for our team. Our staff is more confident and prepared than ever before to support our Jewish clients."

Florina Boyle, Knollwood Country Club 


"The course was great for our staff. Learning how to pronounce the words and learning more about the rules for Kosher food will help our team to provide the best service to our new Jewish clients!"

Paul Wertz, Platinum Dish

"So will we go from the Kaballat Panim to the B'decken?"- your next potential clients asks 

“Umm, let me get back to you on that,” as you furiously scribble it on your clipboard while wishing you had prepared better.

You've got another prospective Jewish client

and you’re determined to be ready to answer questions confidently this time! So you spend the next hour frantically researching the timeline of Jewish weddings and the customs involved. But there’s so much information online you’re not 100% sure where to start…





So you keep doing what you've been doing

like Googling “Jewish weddings and traditions” or buying a book like “Judaism for Dummies” (trust me, you’re not the only one!) Or you ask your Jewish friends, coworkers, and clients the “why” behind Jewish traditions and customs. 


I see you trying! And you already know more than when you started!

But there is so much more you need to learn! Because in the Jewish community...

 Knowledge builds trust and trust earns referrals and referrals are GOLD in the Jewish party world!


Look… you know that having in-depth insider knowledge of Jewish weddings and traditions can help you establish yourself in the Jewish party world!

Specifically, it will help you… 

  • Expand your client list by being an expert in Jewish celebrations
  • Communicate with confidence when talking with Jewish clients
  • Demonstrate your deep respect for your client’s faith and traditions
  • Earn your client’s trust so they’ll pass your name around to their friends
I'm Ready, Pat!

As an outsider working within the tight-knit Jewish community, I knew I had the right combination of experience and deep respect for the Jewish faith to create a course to help you gain the knowledge you needed!

Hey there! I’m Pat Blackwell, the Jewish Party Maven! 

I’m also a Catholic girl who grew up on a pig farm in Minnesota!

“Wait. What? You're not Jewish?”

No. But I’ve spent most of my life learning about the Jewish world, what it represents, and its history! I’ve been honored to help thousands of families put on epic Jewish weddings and parties!

But as someone who knew absolutely nothing at first, I understand how intimidating trying to learn on your own can be!

I’ve also seen how much more you can do when you have a deeper understanding of Jewish traditions. 

That’s why I’m here!

I learned this stuff the hard way. This course gives you the easy way!

Learning Jewish customs and traditions takes more than just reading a book


Having spent over 30 years learning the ins and outs of the Jewish party world and teaching others about it,

I’ve pinpointed three reasons learning Jewish customs and traditions can be challenging for an event professional like you...

While these reasons aren't entirely impossible to overcome individually, finding a solution that knocks out all three at the same time...

That's the challenge! 

Let’s put away your event timelines and seating charts for a second. You are about to get to get access to...

I'm ready to start speaking Jewish, Pat!

After three decades of working in the Jewish party world, I’ve put together everything you need to:

  • Build trust with your in-depth knowledge of the details that go into every celebration and tradition
  • Speak “Jewish” and confidently ask the right questions, make suggestions, and help clients create memories during their special events
  • Navigate the three different branches of Jewish tradition to avoid awkward “foot in mouth” situations 
  • Onboard and train staff on Jewish celebrations so that everyone —from the front of the house to the kitchen staff—understands the “why” behind every tradition and their role in making every event memorable

Let me tell you a little more about me...

You and I have a lot more in common than you think.

 True Story: I knew nothing about Jewish traditions when I started managing events at Temple Israel in 1987


But what I did have was a willingness to learn! And now, I can’t even imagine not being part of the incredible Jewish parties in Detroit! But trying to learn to speak “Jewish” wasn’t always easy! There are so many customs, traditions, and words to remember! And in a community where referrals are GOLD…building a reputation as the venue that deeply understands Jewish traditions can help you build your Jewish client list!

That’s what I want for you!

With over 4400 events under my belt (and red coat) and after working with countless vendors, venues, and Jewish families...

I want to share the joy (and the insider secrets) of working in the Jewish event world!

So what are you waiting for?

If you’re ready to help families create beautiful memories and establish yourself as the go-to for Jewish weddings and celebrations, then…

I'm Ready Pat!

In case you’ve been wondering…

Here are the answers to the questions on your mind!  

"You can ask her any question and you don't need to be embarrassed about not being knowledgable or almost sounding ignorant because you don't know about something. Whenever there is a question, it is not embarrassing. She wants to educate you and that's important to her. I appreciate that!"

Sherri Perez, Director of Catering & Special Events, Detroit Athletic Club

Bingeing on blogs or extensive Youtube videos on Jewish traditions.
