Well, it happened. Rebekah’s long-awaited Bat-Mitvah took place last night and it was a lot of fun and very exciting. The Scripture reading for her was out of the Torah portion titled, "Lech Lecha." It basically means, "Go!" It was when God instructed Abram to leave his father’s house and land and go to where the Lord was going to lead him. Eventually, the Lord led him to Canaan and showed him the promise land where his descendents would live. So, he pitched his tent at Shechem and built an alter to the Lord.
Anyhow, this theme was perfect for Rebekah because we instructed her that it was now her responsibility to follow the Lord’s leading to accomplish his will for her. She was now to go; to trust God, and to walk with him faithfully and honorably.
Well, we hope these pictures say a thousand things. We are so proud of her, and she did great on her Hebrew. "Way to go, Rebekah! We love you."
Jennie and I would like to thank you all for your support and encouragement to her.
Shalom and Blessings,
Adrian and Jennifer Bernal and family
