Zoe’s Bat Mitzvah at Or Shalom, San Francisco with Party at Lake Merced Boathouse

What a great job Zoe did on her Bat Mitzvah day! Not only did she do a great job reading from the Torah, she co-lead the service with Rabbi Katie Mizrahi from Temple Or Shalom in San Francisco. This was my first time attending a service at Or Shalom, a reconstructionist synagogue located near SF State’s campus and near Lake Merced where the celebration party was held at the newly renovated boathouse. I thoroughly enjoyed the festivities and getting acquainted with her family and friends and the rest of the crew who helped make this wonderful day happen. Here are some of my favorite images from the day and following them is a highlights video I managed to shoot in between photo frames!
