A Bar Mitzvah that is also a Pidion HaBen (redemption of the son).
A Bar Mitzvah boy’s parents from a non-religious family, suddenly discovered they were supposed to redeem him when he was 30 days old and did not.
Rabbi Shachar, head of the Yeshiva Beit Midrash and the Rabbi of the neighborhood, told them they can redeem him without delay and suggested the Yeshiva as an option.
Rabbi Barak Epstein who is a Cohen held the redemption.
Yeshiva students helped organize the event and prepared refreshments (pictured).
It was a very touching event.
