In the Jewish religion the Bar Mitzvah is a boys coming of age from boyhood to manhood. Kaleb recently achieved this high honor surrounded by family and friends. The ceremony was held at his synagogue,
Congregation Beth El – Ner Tamid in Broomall, Pennsylvania. The ceremony is spoken in Hebrew and from read right to left. The ceremony is very open and welcome to all. It is filled with scripture and joyous talk. The people who joined Kaleb at the alter hold a special meaning to him.
The party is held for even more family and friends that may not be able to make it to the synagogue. Like most parties there is usually important parts to recognize and pay attention to. The first important piece is the blessing of the meal by breaking the bread called borucha. The second is honoring important people in your life by inviting them to light a candle. The highest honor is the last candle lit and placed. These are meant to celebrate the occasion and do not not get blown out, but rather burn out. After all the traditions and eating is over its time to dance!
