What do Jews do, Bar Mitzvah Edition, Part who the hell knows

What do Jews do for Bar Mitzvahs? Why, they teach themselves how to make iPhoto slideshows with the music of more than one song joined together as multiple tracks through the advanced option of JOIN CD TRACKS and export and import and apply and futz and stay up until all hours until the images look just right and then they hook up fifteen cables from the laptop to a monitor to see if it runs and they learn how to move a mouse from one monitor to another and that you have to attach the DVI cords before you open iPhoto or you lose the play and music options on the slideshow and then they cry everytime they watch 11 minutes of their life go by that traces their child from birth to now.

Heave ho.

That’s what Jews do less than 24 hours before their oldest child and first-born son’s bar mitzvah.

Shabbat shalom and God bless everyone.

  1. Thank you all for your good wishes. They helped keep me a float, I promise. And Jeff – I love the “she who held it all together” – that is excellent. But, of course we know, there were others who have held me together, including this blog and the support system I have only because of it. I am very, very blessed for many reasons.Thanks, everyone.
