Humans of Hebrew College Linking the Generations

Rabbi Seth Wax

“I was privileged to work with a student from Ecuador who was not able to have a bat mitzvah ceremony at home, so we conducted the service in Brooklyn, where much of her family lived. We worked together for a year via Skype. I also helped her grandfather put on tefilin. He is a Holocaust survivor who left Germany as a child on the Kindertransport, and this was the first time he put them on in about 60 years.”

(Rabbi Seth Wax, Rab’13, Congregation Mt. Sinai, Brooklyn Heights, NY)
