Angel had a wonderful time at the Park Center in Glenview, Il drawing digital caricatures for Joe Franklin’s Bar Mitzvah. Bar(Bat) Mitzvah’s are a precious tradition among Jewish people. A milestone in the life of a Jewish child usually on the first Shabbat nearest to the child’s 13th birthday . (some traditions allowed for the female to be “Mitzvah”ed at her 12th.
Religious Jewish people consider it the time when the boy becomes a man. The newly minted man is bears the responsibility before the congregation and God to obey and revere God’s Law as written in the Torah. While “reform” Jewish persons consider it more of a “coming of age” celebration.
This celebration if filled with music, testimonials, dancing and, often…lots and lots of sugar!
It was an honor for Angel, as a Christian goyem to join in the fun and draw these great kids!
Angel (Courtesy of ACCESS Chicago and Record-A-Hit) had a grand time meeting and drawing the guests at the Hilton in Chicago! Fabulous faces a live Sinatra singer (whodda thought old blue eyes was still kicking’?), the Blues Brothers and great food(ooooh the food!). All to celebrate the retirement of Mr. Ed Chen, the beloved Director of Public Relations at Chicago Hilton & Towers. I was glad to be there! Download Pics
