When the ideal bar mitzvah is a Zoom Mitzvah

Title (Dublin Core)

When the ideal bar mitzvah is a Zoom Mitzvah

Description (Dublin Core)

My boy-girl twins had their b'nai mitzvah during the pandemic. It went from me planning a big party, to me trying to make them feel happy about themselves on Zoom. But the secret is: This was possibly the best thing that could have happened! My son is autistic, and we were struggling with how he would deal with the sensory overload of performing in a large synagogue. I wrote a story about it that was published in the Forward, and I want to share it here.
