Jacob and his family celebrated his bar mitzvah at Congregation B’nai Shalom in Walnut Creek, CA. Since there is no photography on Shabbat, I met Jacob, his parents and sister and his grandparents on Friday for a portrait session.
Grandma was so amazing. She learned a Torah portion to chant at Jacob’s bar mtizvah. It’s party time at the Lafayette Veteran’s Memorial Center! Jacob is crazy about sports and games including tennis, basketball, hula-hooping, pingpong, etc. The Hall was transformed into a playroom complete with air hockey, pingpong, b-ball, hula-hooping and balloon games.
Upon entering, guests signed Jacob’s matted portrait (which we took a month prior to the mitzvah) and guessed how many jelly beans were in the jar. Then the went into the main room to play games. I was wowed by the creative tennis theme that ran throughout the decor. It was smashing (bad pun, I know.) Mazel tov again Jacob. A wonderful day of family, friends, celebration. It was a joy capturing your memories.
