If you want a synagogue ceremony, do that. I’m not your guy.
On the other hand, if you want to something special, unique to your kiddo and to what coming of age might mean to your family, I’m glad to help.
– Rabbi Brian
NOTE: You don’t need to know what your “outside-the-box” ceremony looks like. That’s my job. All you need to tell me is that you are interested. We talk and take it from there.
I applaud you for thinking about doing this differently.
We had the honor and privilege of having Rabbi Brian preside over our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah this past May. Our Rabbi was taken ill and without any hesitation, Rabbi Brian jumped at the chance to help us. He met with our daughter, Rachel, through various methods including teaching himself to use Snapchat so he could talk with her in a way that worked for her. He checked in on her, made sure she was practicing in a playful yet supportive way, and helped her write her speech which was one of her biggest struggles.
Thank you Rabbi for having our special day be even more special.
