      Dear Judith,
      What are your memories of the day when you became a Bat Mitzvah and your father was also the officiating rabbi? I’m looking forward to being “Ima on the Bima” and wonder how your family and congregation celebrated your simcha then.
      We marked Rabbi Plaut’s Yahrtzeit just last week. May his memory continue to be a blessing for you, his daughter, and for our congregation.
      L’Shalom,
      Rabbi Yael Splansky

    Thank you for including the whole congregation on this special day for Avishai and the Splansky/Sol family. Does a Rabbi, too, get sweaty palms and hyperventilate when her son is standing on the bimah, chanting Torah in front of what feels like a multitude, as he becomes bar mitzvah? Just wondering….
