Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah

CRT Congratulates our B’nai Mitzvah Class  
Our Temple Family and many guests gathered to honor the 9 members who participated in a year of study and preparation together, to mark this spiritual milestone as adults. The Service featured personal statements from each student, sharing their spiritual journeys and personal understandings of Judaism. The B’nai Mitzvah are Judy Arick, Paula Dickerman, Steven Littlehale, Merle Marquis, Jan Shapiro, Diane Stern, Maureen Perlmutter, Lillian Weigert and Susan Werbe. Their moving statements had us laughing and crying, challenged and inspired! As several members and guests commented, this was one of the most powerful and moving Services they have ever attended. The Class announced a special gift to the Temple in honor of this wonderful occasion- a new white Torah Mantle for the High Holy Days. Following the Service everyone gathered for a spectacular Oneg Shabbat reception. Man of our B’nai Mitzvah statements are below:
