Dear Friends,

Our son and middle child, Charlie, will be 13 years old on September 28th. In October, Charlie will read the wisdom of our ancestors from the Torah for his Bar Mitzvah. At that time, Charlie will be welcomed into the adult Jewish community. This will be a powerful moment of sacred initiation and of becoming.

For the special occasion of Charlie's Bar Mitzvah, we ask you to share with him a personal blessing, a poem, a quote, or a piece of wisdom.

Warmest regards,

Charlie's Family
