Florida Girl Celebrates Bat Mitzvah with IDF

South-Florida-logo

North Miami Beach native Liba Tenenbaum recently observed her bat mitzvah with the Chabad of Hebron. After a tour of the city, Liba, her parents Zusha and Shulamis, and other family members were joined by 60 female soldiers brought in from their regional bases. Chabad’s new Kiryat Arba Beis Chaya Mushka Center hosted a celebration that included a program coordinated by shaleach Mrs. Batsheva Cohen on the unique mitzvot fulfilled by women.

The event included a hands-on challah baking, a candlestick-making workshop, and discussions of the uniqueness of the Jewish woman. Liba spoke about what the day meant to her and how it felt to celebrate the event in Israel with Israeli soldiers. She was followed by the commander of the women’s unit who described the inspiring and supportive relationship developed with Mrs. Cohen and how much she appreciates Chabad’s outreach and efforts. The beautiful simcha ended with lively dancing to a band of female musicians.

Mazel tov on a beautiful and meaningful bat mitzvah.
