Today my oldest daughter and I had a new experience together.  We were invited to a Bah Mitzvah.
This is us being silly with the camera. (excuse the red lips they served Jerry's Sno Cones) 

The synagogue was beautiful!! I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked but I did sneak a few shots. 
This is a picture of the beautiful art above the ark (of the covenant)  Between the white squares is where they keep the Torah scrolls.  They can't be touched by human hands.  They use dowels to turn the pages in the Torah.
This is the Torah scrolls up close.
This is a Menorah sculpture in the lobby.
I only got one picture of the reception.  Nora's bah Mitzvah project was helping at an animal shelter.  She focused all her service projects around an animal theme.  So, here are her center pieces.  They will be donated to the cat and dog rescue here in the city.
Those are cake pops in the dog bowls.  I thought it was such a cute idea.
Although I didn't understand most of what was being said (it was in Hebrew) it resonated in my spirit.  Some of the prayers literally brought me to tears.  Oddly enough something so foreign to me seemed so familiar.  I have always loved the Jewish heritage and somehow felt connected.  I don't know if this is reigniting of a passion I use to have.  I am very glad I could go and have this experience with my sweet girl.  Next year she will be 13, I have planned our own rite of passage party for her.  But you have to wait until next year........
