I recently had the privilege of flying back to the country I’ve called home for most of my life, South Africa, to celebrate a very special simcha. It has been almost two years since my husband and I made aliyah with our two young children. In that time, we’ve been lucky to return to South Africa for various family celebrations, including our nephew’s bar mitzvah and our niece’s bat mitzvah. Each event saw us celebrating with family and friends we’ve known for years. We talk about these celebrations often – they are memories we will have forever. But this time, we marked a unique milestone – that of my father’s second bar mitzvah, which fell on his 83rd birthday.
