Peninsula Temple Sholom is a beautiful, modern space for prayer, community and reflection. Documenting the Peninsula Temple Sholom Bat Mitzvah of Shana, I loved that music was incorporated into the ceremony. The cantor accompanied many prayers on his guitar, and this really brought the congregation into the moment. The bat mitzvah guests eagerly joined the songs. Shana dressed in a very chic pink dress, and she looked absolutely gorgeous as she beamed out at her adoring guests. Of course, a Bat Mitzvah is about much more than looking pretty. With the guidance of her parents, Shana spent a great deal of time preparing her Haftorah portion, as well as her speech. When she finally took the stage, she was funny, witty, and charismatic.
