Bnei mitzvah season is upon us. The High Holy Days are over, but the fun never stops at SWESRS.

Over the next couple of months, several children in this community will come of age. They will celebrate reaching 13, learning Torah, leading services and giving a sermon.

All the young people are impressively educated, ready to take on their lives as Jewish adults. It is a great fortune, then, that the parashah is Bereishit: beginnings.

For these young people on their Jewish journeys, this is just the beginning.

Shabbat Shalom
