Mazel Tov to Ezra Raphael and his family on having a wonderful Bar Mitzvah this past Shabbat. The Torah portion and Haftorah were each read beautifully by Ezra. Torah was also read by some of Ezra’s family members including his Bubbe, Ann Polunsky, in honor of the simcha. The ceremony was followed by a delicious kiddush catered by the Bar Mitzvah boy’s own family, Pam & Butch Raphael. AZ Pops popsicles were especially enjoyed by all! Thank you for sharing your family’s joyous event with us here at Beth El. We are proud to be your spiritual home away from home!
