Jacob became a Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, November 5, 2005. He was absolutely spectacular. He did such a wonderful job, both with his Torah & Haftorah readings as well as his D'var Torah. Everyone is extremely proud of him. All the years of religious school & Hebrew school & the weekly study sessions for the 6 months leading up to his Bar Mitzvah certainly paid off.
Below are some pictures from Friday night, November 4, 2005. During Friday night services, Jacob's two grandmothers and I led the candlelighting and Jake led the Kiddush. Afterwards, we all went over to the club house at my Mother-in-Law's for dinner with all of our out of town guests. (Actual Bar Mitzvah pictures from Saturday are still to come).
