Bat-Mitzvah

One of my cousins had her bat-mitzvah on Sunday at a brand new sanctuary in the new Hillel building at the University of Toronto. It’s a beautiful building, and the sanctuary is on the third floor, with windows on all sides that have faint images in them that look like shadows–a unique and very neat effect. Through the windows is a good view of Robarts library, the athletic centre building and the Zoology building.The service was lead entirely by family members, and my cousin did a fine job reading Torah.

Later in the evening we reconviened for a dinner party at my uncle and aunt’s house, which we hadn’t seen before.  It is a beautiful, custom-built house with a very modern but classic design.  Lately I have found myself paying more attention to the design and decor of other people’s houses as a source of ideas for our own place.  It makes me realize that it may be a good idea to involve a professional designer before making any major decisions; it’s not easy to make everything work.
