It was a beautiful service, led by Rabbi David Fainsilber, and then a day of celebration.

I love this moment, after the Torah service, when the new Bat Mitzvah gets showered with candy by the congregation!

After the luncheon at JCOGS Rachel and her friends cooled off with a pool party at Smuggler’s Notch

…and then everyone (parents and kids) gathered again that evening under a tent at the resort for dinner and dancing.

The food was amazing and Music and entertainment by DJ Mike Toomey of Supersounds kept everyone partying and happy throughout the night.
