Here is a slideshow of Theo's barmitzvah with the highlights of the day (it's a small resolution due to it's size).
Until three years ago when I photographed Joel's barmitzvah I was not familiar with the Jewish tradition of Barmitzvah or Bat Mitzvah or Barmi as people often call it. According to Jewish law, when Jewish children reach 13 years of age, they become responsible for their actions, and "become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah".
The Bar Mitzvah ceremony involves the young man or woman being called to read the Torah, at a Shabbat or other service when the Torah is read. The event is one of the most important events in the life of a Jew and the service in the synagogue is usually followed by a big party.
