I have been blessed with my first 0ne-on-one bat mitzvah student, a lovely 11 year-old girl. It has been a long time since I was 11, and I have no daughters so hanging out with an 11 year-old is a new experience for me. Clara and her parents are Argentinian and she spent 4 years in Hong Kong, and then Ohio, and now in our community, so her perspective is fresh, enriching and causes me to think.
