A good friend's mother passed away early last week, and after the funeral we helped with her shiva, going to daily prayers each evening. Then, yesterday, we went to Hannah's Bat Mitzvah at Leo Baeck Temple in the Sepulveda Pass. (Even though we left early, we hit about four traffic jams en route, and missed the first few minutes of the service.) She did very well, and the post-service luncheon was remarkable for good food, and a very familial atmosphere.
