Since 2010, I’ve been photographing Bar/Bat Mitzvahs all over the Pittsburgh area. Yet until last weekend, I had never been to Beth El Congregation in the South Hills. I was delighted to meet Alex and his family the Thursday before his Bar Mitzvah service for photos, and then to return Saturday evening as Alex celebrated with his family and friends. This was a great night for kids and adults alike, with a photo booth, caricature artist, and entertainment by the always energetic team from Soundtastic Enterprises.
Rabbi Alex was so warm and welcoming, making me feel like this was my 12th time at Beth El and not my first! I’m already looking forward to returning again next month.
Here are a few favorites from Alex’s photo session and party. Mazel tov!
Many of the people in the next couple photos came all the way from Chile to celebrate with Alex!
Mazel tov, Alex!
