Noa is an incredible young woman, and her Bat Mitzvah was one of the most impressive I've ever seen. She did a beautiful job, reading Torah perfectly and delivering a thoughtful and beautiful sermon. Since Noa's mother is a rabbi, she got to hold her Bat Mitzvah service in the synagogue at the Hebrew Union College campus in Manhattan. It's a gorgeous venue that lends itself very well to no-flash photography. The lunch reception was held in the HUC atrium, where Noa's friends and family celebrated her accomplishment with – what else? – eating and dancing.
Mazel Tov Noa!
