Mitchell's Bar Mitzvah

These photos are from the Bar Mitzvah of Mitchell. His mother, the lovely Leslie Resnick asked me to photograph this event. It was such an honor and a privilege to be here on this important day, and I must say, they put together such an exciting and wonderful celebration! One of the vendors working the event was called The Perfect Element; Their DJs did the best job of getting everyone energetic, smiling, and dancing that I have ever seen! For those of you who aren't familiar with Mitzvahs, here's a brief description borrowed from wikipedia:

"Reaching the age of bar mitzvah signifies becoming a full-fledged member of the Jewish community with the responsibilities that come with it. These include moral responsibility for own actions, eligibility to be called to read from the Torah and lead or participate in a Minyan, may possess personal property, may be legally married according to Jewish law, must follow the 613 laws of the Torah and keep the Halakha, may testify as a witness in a Beth Din case." -wikipedia
