Bravo!
When my kids came “of age”,
I was a single mother working on my PhD and teaching part-time in Synagogue schools. So my two eldest daughters(13 and 12) were called to the torah in Synagogue; the party afterwards was pot luck in a friend’s backyard.
For my third daughter, we did the whole thing in a friend’s backyard (also potluck).
My son, had his ceremony in another friend’s backyard with a potluck dinner. Lots of singing and laughing and congratulating went on at
all three events.

For the latter two events, I served as Rabbi, since I was teaching Hebrew at the time.

I am glad to see others now creating alternative forms of a rite of passage.

Mazal tov!
