Celebrating the Bar and Bat Mitzvah

It has been said in Jewish tradition that celebrations are meant to be an expression of the soul. The Jewish celebration of life, the bar and bat mitzvah, is so impactful that every time we do a mitzvah (a good deed), we enhance our connection with the source of our life. To “celebrate” life is the ultimate mitzvah. Life parades its magnificence in everything and everybody, and it is a beautiful expression of our soul to want to celebrate that daily.

Joan’s extensive Jewish travels abroad to Eastern Europe, Israel, and Italy prompted her to make a statement about the meaning and importance of Jewish tradition through her photographs. “Seeing the bitter remains of concentration camps, towns once inhabited by thousands of Jews, now only buried memories of loved ones, and salvaged ritual artifacts from the Nazis prompted me to make a statement about our traditions in my exhibits of bar and bat mitzvahs: L’Dor V’Dor, From Generation to Generation.
