Rebecca is the daughter of Peter’s daughter Shana, legal counsel and compliance director – no, really, this is true – of Madoff Securities. Shana will not be joining her father in prison.
Following the ceremony, which was live-streamed online, Madoff and 100 guests, surrounded by security, went downstairs to the posh Pavilion Room, where they noshed on catered salmon, tuna and bagels.
The scene gave Madoff’s victims indigestion.
“I would much prefer that Peter Madoff be locked up and the only way he can attend the bat mitzvah is through pictures sent to him in prison,” said Michael DeVita, 62, who lost his retirement assets to the Madoff scam.
A Manhattan event planner told The Post that a 200-guest bat mitzvah with all the trimmings at a place like 404 NYC can run $75,000 to $100,000.
The party continues today.
