I get asked what a Bar Mitzvah is all the time. As if I am a specialist…..the dictionary defines it as a coming-of-age ceremony in the Jewish religion. When a boy turns thirteen, he is considered a man and reads a torah portion in front of friends, family and his shul.
Pretty good summary if you ask me. Wish I could claim it as my own.
This time it was Harry who was becoming a man. I’m game for any reason to have a big party and invite all my friends…… anyone that says otherwise is nuts or delusional. It was clear Harry felt the same way!
Back to Harrys day…. Or party I should say!
The Warehouse in Toronto set the scene for one epic party. As always, The Magen Boys rocked the party. There were dancers, acrobats, giant balloons hanging from the ceiling, a rapper, and tons and tons of yummy treats. What else could anyone ask for! The one thing that stood out the most for me was the love of his family and friends. The speeches and smiling faces told me they were and amazing group of people and he was one lucky ‘man’!
