April is a big month in the Saxe-Taller household!
On Saturday, April 2, our son Sam will be called to the Torah and become Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Sherith Israel in San Francisco where my wife, Julie, is Associate Rabbi.
We are excited for the festivities and deeply proud of our son. Some of you have had the opportunity to meet Sam, and if you have, you know that he shares his dad’s interest in engaging people. Sam will be surrounded by hundreds of family members, friends and mentors who are coming to share this important ritual in his and our lives.
Any of you who have spoken to me over the last month know, I have been working hard managing the many details of both my job and Bar Mitzvah preparation. I am grateful for the understanding and generosity that so many of you have offered me during this time.
As the day approaches, I am continually pleased that I am connected to such a diverse web of Jewish communities, including Kehilla.
