We are on TV! Several months ago, Disney's "Andi Mack" filmed the Bar Mitzvah of one of its central characters in our synagogue. Several members of our community participated in various ways.

"Friday night, in a special one-hour episode based around Cyrus’ bar mitzvah – an extravagant celebration that includes a chocolate fountain and a fortune teller – “Andi Mack” will feature a literal coming of age on a show that has grown along with its characters"

The premiere of that episode is tonight and it will air throughout the week. See how many of us you can spot!
