Today was Nitzach she b'Nitzach - a day of endurance in a week of endurance.
Two and a half weeks ago--day 8 of the Omer, since we are counting--I wrote about Forrest Benjamin's Bar Mitzvah. Today, Brian Geller emailed me with a link to the photos he took that day. Here are a few..
Here he is with Rabbi Hyman just after receiving his new tallit. You've got to love the smiles on each of their faces.
And here he is reading Torah, with his parents to his right and his two favorite rabbis to his left.
And here we are, teacher and student, as Forrest leads the Torah service. A proud moment for all.
