This has been quite an amazingly busy month with all the simchas… and today was such an interesting contrast yet with such similarities.
I started the day with one mitzvah and ended with another. Our friends’ son, sweet little Aviah Daniel was celebrated today at his brit milah and I was honored to be there. Aviah entered the Jewish Covenant today, and his father completed his Covenant by having the brit milah for his son. This was the beginning of Aviah’s life as a Jewish boy. There was song, celebration, and, of course…lots of food.
Immediately after the bris, Ric and I packed up our gear, dressed in our all black “ninja photographer” garb, and headed to our next mitzvah. Andrea and Jason were starting their life together as husband and wife. There was song, celebration and, of course…lots of food! Although functioning in a different capacity than we were in the morning, we were honored to be a small part of this celebration for Andrea and Jason.
What a month of mitzvahs… Five Weddings and a Bris!
