Teen’s Bar Mitzvah opened to public to help Houston heal

BELLAIRE, Texas (AP) — A Houston teen and his family invited the broader Jewish community to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah, a typically invite-only Jewish ceremony ushering a boy into manhood.

Scott Hausman-Weiss, the rabbi for Shma Koleinu, a congregation that doesn’t have a permanent house of worship, opened 13-year-old Doran Evan Yustein’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday by pointing out the importance of coming together as a congregation and broader community at such times of hardship.
