Culver City Bar Mitzvah

Rabbi Zachary Shapiro, Cantor Lonee Frailich and Bar Mitzvah boy Alex at Temple Akiba of Culver City

The fun of this job is getting to meet families and returning, year after year, to participate in their historic, momentous occasions.
So it was truly an honor when Tobie invited us back to document Alex’s recent Bar Mitzvah at Temple Akiba of Culver City. We had done the honors for brother Ben just a few years back.
Note the back to back photos of Tobie and Alex at the Bima–gee, Alex has grown a little bit since then, huh?
Akiba has recently been upgraded with a beautiful remodel, hence, the different looks. The first shot as done in the social hall, while the sanctuary was being redone.

A quick word about our friend Rabbi Zachary Shapiro, the guitar strumming Culver City spiritual leader who has an amazing collection of 6, 7, 8 and 9 string guitars in his study, plus a banjo. He encourages the kids to play along with him at the services–thus Alex and his guitar. Rock on, our friends!
