Sniff, and it only seems like yesterday that he was in nappies!

OK, so it's been a while since I updated the blog. Sorry.

Anyway, it is now only three weeks to Aryeh Yehuda's bar mitzvo, so it seemed like a good time to add some new pictures of the fella.

A couple of weeks ago, he got his tefillin. In line with an age-old tradition, the first day he put them on, he was helped by the family Rov. Below are a "before" and "after" shot of Rabbi Pollak helping him put on his tefillin...

After a predictably slow start, he is now getting pretty efficient at putting them on and taking them off. The one disadvantage of this is that I now have to wind up my own! Previously, he was doing it for me. Oh well, only a couple of years before Eliyohu starts wearing them... now that's a mind-boggling thought!

To complete the "young man" image, Aryeh Yehuda also got a new suit and hat for the occasion...
