As an Irish Catholic person, well, Irish anyway, I have never had the opportunity to attend a Bar Mitzvah. This past Saturday, my husband and I attended our nephew’s son’s Bar Mitzvah. I knew photographs were not allowed, so I sat in the back row and did a little sketching. It was a beautiful ceremony, and David made his family proud. We were honored to share in this major life event. Mazel tov, David!
