First Bar Mitzva in the community

On March 19th the Ohel Menashe community celebrated its first Bar Mitzvah ceremony with Ori Markovitch’s Aliya to the Torah. It was a moving ceremony for all, and for many guests an unusual one, as it was egalitarian and everyone sat together as families. Ori read beautifully, and wrote an interesting Dvar Torah for a challenging Torah portion.
We are thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of this family’s special occasion, and having said She’hechiaynu at the first Bar Mitzvah, we look forward to conducting many more services such as this.
