From bar Mitzvah to Confirmation

There are a lot of really amazing things about being a rabbi. Officiating at lifecycle moments is one of my favorite aspects of being a rabbi and last week at Temple Beth Hillel marked something special. After almost three years of sacred service with this congregation I was fortunate to be present at the Confirmation of one of the students whose bar Mitzvah service I officiated. Mazal tov, JM!

All of the students who were confirmed are extremely special and unique. They thoughtfully demonstrated their own growth and development in their statesments of faith, they led the service with poise and thoughtfulness, and this group’s unique musical contributions filled the room with joy and meaning. It is a week later and I remain extremely proud of these students, their ongoing commitment to Judaism and Jewish life, and Temple Beth Hillel. Mazal tov to all of the confirmands and their families!
