The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Get on the Bat Mitzvah-mobile

Posted in Uncategorized by Juliet on July 27, 2013

Hop on!  It has begun.  Eva came back from a month at Jewish summer camp excited about attending some of her friends’ bat mitzvahs this year.  And sure enough, the first of this round of invitations arrived two days ago.  (Plus a verbal save the date for 14 months from now.  We love our Franklin Planners around here!)

Scott is driving Eva to West Hollywood for this one.  I’m sure it will be the first of many afternoons or evenings spent killing time in unfamiliar neighborhoods, sitting in a Starbucks or browsing in a bookstore, while the kids party on.  Or “get their party on” as Jane would say.

Speaking of Eva, and being Jewish, there were FIVE girls in her age group at camp named Eva!  Five!  She rarely ever meets other Evas.  Lots of Avas, yes, and people try to pronounce “Eva” as “Ava” all the time, but other little 11 or 12 year olds named Eva?  Not so much.  The two that she knows here in town are both Jewish so I’m guessing we’re all mining the family tree for names, Jewish-style.
