Our nephew, Zach Grant's bar mitzvah gives us cause to respect another religion and expose the children to a different culture than what we practice. Of course, a 2 hour service tests anyone – and they did great. They loved throwing the marshmallows in cellophane….OK, I admit we ate one – or Soph did – she was barely hangin’ in on the end….the marshmallow helped. Later, when the “Western” themed party got way – the kiddos had a blast. Courtney and Soph didn’t like the noise level……the boys and I rode the mechanical bull! Fun times, family times…..the boys want to know if they can have bar mitzvahs – the answer is "no, we aren’t Jewish! "
