A winter Bar Mitzvah; my first actually for a person I’ve worked with on Facing History & Ourselves projects who asked me to document her oldest son’s bar mitzvah. A story that spanned a family session at home, the rehearsal and a Sunday Brunch. (and was supposed to include the Party but an untimely blizzard prevented me from getting there despite my efforts). The family session covered various aspects of the day-to-day which for a family of hockey players, a street game & lucky for me, the installation of their backyard ice rink. After, I documented practicing with Mom and ended with beautiful portraits.
