Aryeh Yehuda's Bar Mitzvo seudo

Well, the Big Day finally arrived. Aryeh Yehuda's bar mitzvo seudo went off splendidly, even if I do say so myself! This was in no small part due to the magnificent efforts of my good lady wife, who organised the whole thing.

First off, Aryeh Yehuda said his drosho...

Listening keenly (and not falling asleep as it looks in the picture) were, from right to left, Rabbi Chaim Modche Zahn shlita (head of Beis HaTalmud school), Rabbi Pollak shlita (our Rov) and Rabbi Leibish Rabinowitz shlita (rov of our shul)...

Shlepping nachas by the bucket load were the Boss and myself (she's the one on the right)...

More nachas was shlepped by both sets of doting grandparents. Here are his paternal grandparents...

...and the maternal ones...

All in all, the boy did us proud. Looking cool, calm and collected throughout the whole thing, I think we were more nervous than he was!

Two days later, on Thursday morning, Aryeh Yehuda leined in shul...

On the left is Mattisyohu Black, who taught him the leining. He did a great job!
