I have a date!

No, not the cute-guy-you-met-at-a-party type. (Relax, Sam!)

It’s a date for my Bat Mitzvah ceremony — February 26, 2011.

I met with the rabbi last Friday and went over my list of things I’d like to learn about. He reeled off suggestions for relevant books to read and discuss. I popped over to Afikomen yesterday and bought a bunch of them.

We’re also going to post a notice in the temple‘s monthly bulletin to see if there are other folks interested in an adult Bar or Bat Mitzvah, so we could form a class.

More later. I just wanted to shout the date out loud! (Or the electronic equivalent of shouting.)

It’s that old reporter-with-a-deadline thing. Having a date makes this much more real.

    Mazel Tov Ilana! What a great journey you are on and what an amazing learning opportunity. My Bat MItzvah goal at age 13 was just to get through the service.

    We will be there!
