This is a most beautiful blessing. What a wonderful daughter you must have...and what great parents she must have.

Christopher Teeter

Jeff - thanks for sharing the Bat Mitzvah blessing on your Blog. ... what an uplifting read! ... our children grow up too fast in today's culture. ... what a blessing to be able to enjoy "the spirit of youth" while entering into the young adult era.

Karin Chenoweth

Thank you for posting that. You made my day.

Marc Gunther

Well said, Jeff.
May we all hold onto our childlike curiosity and wonder.

Thank you, Jeff, for sharing those wonderful words.

Beth Sperber Richie

It was beautiful to hear when you said it, and wonderful to get a second chance to really take it in by reading it here. It's a blessing I wish for my kids as well, although I am sure I wouldn't bless them quite as eloquently as you!

A beautiful affair! Hannah did so well.... Kudos also to the guitarist and organizer of the playlist that so thoroughly entertained Hannah's friends, as well as to mom, who arranged it all.

tov; You must be beaming! Your daughter sounds very special. Beautiful words. At our oldest daughter's Bat Mitzvah, the comments to make were the most difficult to decide upon.

well done,



And what about the mom's blessings? I heard they were quite lovely too.

Jeff Weintraub

I don't know. I wasn't paying attention.


Audrey, Your blessing was also beautiful and memorable--you just didn't put it on a blog for all the world to see and drink in. Some of us are just more private and maybe even shy to share it with everyone. like me, you prefer to keep those private, sweet moments to just us. We mothers understand that. As you know, I always keep my thoughts and opinions to myself.

Jeff Weintraub

Dear Rinky, whoever you are. May, then, you should start your own blg to get out of your shell.


Who's JRW anyway?

Jeff, I will pass this along to many i know. It was a beautiful blessing that any parent could hope for their child or children. Thanks for sharing. Heather
