Celebrating a bar mitzvah is already a big deal, but having it in a different city on the other side of the country with new friends and family to meet made is extra special for Joseph. Joseph lives on the west coast in British Columbia, however, he was in Toronto for his big day that included a morning service and reception at Congregation Habonim of Toronto and was later followed by a spectacular boat cruise that took us around the Toronto harbour, through the islands and gave us picture perfect views of the skyline. Of course, no bar mitzvah celebration is complete with a traditional hora dance and party so that's exactly what happened after all the guests finished dinner and watched an impromptu magic show put on by the bar mitzvah boy himself.
What a great experience it was to be surrounded by all of Joseph's family and friends on a magical night that brought everybody a bit closer (and sweatier) as they came together for Joseph. Mazel Tov and we will you all the best!
