News & Jews – Southern California Holocaust Survivors Participate in Belated Rite of Passage

    On Sunday, Nov. 5, 59 Holocaust survivors participated in a B’nai Mitzvah, a rite of passage ceremony which was denied to them in their youth. Held at the Merage Jewish Community Center in Irvine, the ceremony was conducted by Rabbi Yisroel Ciner (above center) and Rabbi Susan Freeman. The celebration continued with a dinner, entertainment and gifts. The survivors, ranging in age from 78 to 102, reside in San Diego and Orange County. All are participants of Serving Our Survivors, a program of the Center for Jewish Care at Jewish Family Service of San Diego. The joyous evening was generously funded by the Honig Family Foundation, represented by Ken Honig (above far right).
