Our Bar Mitzvahs

Barmitzvah-Boys
“We both celebrated our Bar Mitzvahs at Central within one week of each other – 9 and 16 March 2013.   (I’m Gideon on the left, and I’m Jacob on the right).

Born within one day of each other, we’ve been friends since nursery school. Our parents both joined the shul at the same time.

We both had memorable ceremonies, surrounded by our friends and families, and will never forget the welcoming atmosphere which everyone in the community creates.

Our special thanks go to Rabbi Marcus who managed to make all of our guests laugh, and to Chazan Stephen Leas for making us both feel relaxed and confident on the bimah.

Finally, we also wanted thank Sara Cohen and Roz Laren for organising our kiddushes which were delicious, and appreciated by all of our friends.”
