|Max with his custom yad|
I didn't think it would be 10 months until I'd sit down and share these photos here, but I'm a very lapsed blogger these days. As with Hannah's bat mitzvah, we used the amazing Amy Emily Photography to capture this day. Given all that we had to give up having such a milestone in the middle of a pandemic, the photos were really important to me, and I'm so glad we have them. Here's all about Max's bar mitzvah.

|I can't help but think Max looks a bit Obama-ish in this one.|
|My biggest accomplishment in life? How much these two love each other.|
|Posing with our masks and the monitor where we saw everyone on Zoom|
|They've moved on from dabbing to the woah!|
|Our pandemic party set up from behind the velvet ropes.|
|Shira couldn't help but pose.|
|Havdalah kicked off the festivities|
|A portion of our Zoom party attendees - we had one for family, and another for Max's friends|

|So much vamping.|
|Hannah had a "bat mitzvah high five" - for Max it became a "bar mitzvah elbow."|
And one last photo of genuine gratitude from Max. How lucky we are.
