At Shabbat services ,our Rabbi encouraged us to remake our Bar or Bat Mitzvah . So I will. But , I will read what should have been my portion, if my Orthodox Congregation had allowed women on the Bimah ! I would
have been 13 in 1947. Yikes,That was a very long time ago.
I did have a bat Mitzvah, but I was in my 40's . That was when I made my speech that started with " it's never too late".
I have a whole year to practice reading from the Torah. I am already excited about it. ( please, no fountain pens)
it will be very fitting for me to remake my Bat Mitzvah, I will have had my 80 th birthday
and that is a very auspicious way to start the next phase of my lfe. I wonder what else I can do.
I think that I will make a list and every month for the entire year, I will take on a new experience. Bat Mitzvah
in January, then what ? I have to give this some thought .I'm throwing out the challenge .Suggestions welcomed.
It's never too late to plan a........
