I have known Sophie since she was three years old and photographed her and her family many times over the years. Sophie reached an important Jewish milestone when she turned 13 years old and it was very special to part take in her Bat Mitzvah celebration. Sophie had her Bat Mitzvah ceremony at the Brotherhood Synagogue in Manhattan. A beautiful converted historic Quaker meeting place right across from Gramercy Park where Sophie has been studying for her Bat Mitzvah. I had the pleasure photographing her during the rehearsal a couple days before the ceremony. Congratulations to Sophie and her family!
