Asher's Bar Mitzvah

Asher became a Bar Mitzvah a few weeks ago and celebrated becoming a Jewish "Man" - According to Jewish law, 13-year-old Asher earned that title on June 2 when he helped lead the service at Ohavi Zedek Synagogue and read his half Torah portion in front of family, friends and congregants.

It is tradition to celebrate the day by attending the Bar Mitzvah service in the morning and then continuing the festivities later on with a reception. Asher's friends and family joined him in the evening at the Courtyard Marriott in Burlington for dinner and dancing.

 The kids all posed for a picture wearing the custom T shirts Asher provided to commemorate the day.
