This past Shabbos was an adult B'nei Mitzvah at our shul. Two men, one who has a learning disability and wasn't taught as a boy, and one who grew up in Romania became Bar Mitzvah. The first man is in his 80s, and the Romanian is about 30 and a recent immigrant. And then four women, all grandmothers, became Bat Mitzvah. They wore tallitot and gave Divrei Torah on the importance of justice and taking on God's commandments. And people think feminism is just for hippies and college girls.

It was an all-around heart warming (if not excruciatingly long) service.
