The diamonds in the life of bnoth mitzvah

  • CommunityLinksfieldBatmitzvah
Diamonds shine from within. The theme of the Linksfield-Senderwood Hebrew Congregation batmitzvah ceremony was diamonds and the 11 participating girls told family and friends at the shul on August 27 of the real diamonds in the lives of a young Jewish woman.

These diamonds included family, chessed, morals, heritage, Jewish learning, family, friendship and mitzvot.

Each girl focused on a different element and the genuine way in which they spoke, gave motivation for their parents, families and the broader community.

Chazzan Nachie Levin added a special touch to the ceremony when he sang “Eishet Chayil” to the girls and Rabbi Levi Avtzon addressed the young women by praising their achievements in the programme and he encouraged them to further their growth beyond their batmitzvahs.

After the girls received their batmitzvah certificates, they danced dancing and a hosted a high tea in the shul hall, which gave an opportunity for all family and friends present to celebrate with them.

The ceremony was a culmination of an intense and fun year of engaging in their Judaism with weekly meetings led by Rebbetzins Chaya Avtzon and Hannah Bank. The girls also participated in an inspiring Shabbaton, joined their mothers in a challah bake, had fun outings and went for a tour of the mikvah.
