Let’s Help NPR Find The Owner of This Bat Mitzvah T-Shirt from 1993

Ah, the days of the bat mitzvah tee–before Drake started playing at parties and expensive hoodies became a gift giveaway norm. Well, we miss the classic bar mitzvah party t-shirt, and so do two NPR correspondents. Thus, they are on a hunt to find the owner/namesake of this “Dancing with the Toons” t-shirt.

Last week, Gregory Warner and David Kestenbaum reported on the after life of American clothes–namely how clothes we outgrow or get tired of end up in bins in sub-Saharan Africa. Through out their rummage, they found this gem from Jennifer’s bat mitzvah, dated November 20th, 1993.

The question they desperately want answered (as do we): WHO IS JENNIFER?

The shirt had a tag sewn inside (most likely from the clothes-labeling days of Jewish summer camp) that reads Rachel Williams.

Do you know Rachel? Do you know Jennifer? Help these two guys solve this bat mitzvah mystery! Email planetmoney@npr.org and put “that’s my shirt” in the subject line.

Let the Jewish geography conversations commence!

UPDATE: Jennifer (and Rachel Williams) have been found. Good job, internet. Read the update here.
