Invitation Lady

The MBIEE Sisterhood is proud to continue the “Invitation Lady” services!


Many of us remember Harriet Barenbaum z”l with love and admiration as the “Invitation Lady” who served Philadelphia and the suburbs from Melrose B’nai Israel Emanu-El for 38 years.

To continue Harriet’s legacy and to benefit MBIEE, the Sisterhood has arranged for Rishona Myers to maintain the Invitation Lady services at our new home at 8339 Old York Road in Elkins Park, PA.

We will continue to offer a discount on invitations and personalized stationery.  We have invitations and customized stationery solutions to meet all your social printing needs:

  • Announcements
  • Anniversaries
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah
  • Birthdays
  • Custom personal stationary
  • Graduations
  • Housewarming parties
  • Save the Dates
  • Showers
  • Weddings

MBIEE Sisterhood is also pleased to offer favors, place cards, programs, kippot and other printed apparel for your special occasions.  We have an extensive library of sample books and can provide a calligrapher if desired.

If you prefer to create your own invitation, MBIEE Sisterhood can be your invitation counselor, gain our experience and expertise at an hourly rate.

Please call the MBIEE office (215-635-1505) to schedule an appointment with Rishona, or email:
