Bar Mitzvah II


Top left. When you look closely, you will see two Torah cannisters against the partition. It means that there are two bars mitzvah, preparing to do their first readings. This is still at the open air synagogue, at the Western (Wailing) Wall. The partition is between the male and female sections of the synagogue. Moving up to the partition for the reading, allows for contact with the women folks. Sweets, toasts and quips are shared and when the bar mitzvah starts reading all his family is within easy ear shot.


Bottom right. A close-up of a bar mitvah busy with his first reading. Note the little girl in pink, on the 'wrong' side of the partition.


I'll be away for a little more than 10 days. I leave you with this bar mitzvah entertaining the guests at his party, with a song.

Have an interesting and challenging and satisfying 10 days, Louis.
Very nice photojournalism, Louis! Thanks for the video - what a sweet voice.
Enjoy your time away! Take care!
I really wish I knew the translation of his song, Louis, because I was crying along with him. Very touching. I can imagine the rite of passage this is for the entire family.
