Bar Mitzva Culmination of a Family's Dream

One aspect of last Satur-
day's Sabbath service at
Cong. Shaarey Zedek was
described by Rabbi Irwin
Groner as "singular and
unique."
It was the Bar Mitzva of
Steven Paul Mitchell, son of
Mrs. Richard Mitchell of
Dundee Rd., Huntington
Woods, and the late Mr.
Mitchell.
Steven, who shared the
service with another Bar
Mitzva, Howard Bennet, pre-
pared for the event despite
obstacles created by deaf-
ness.
Unlike the routine multiple
blessings by the rabbi when
there is more than one Bar
Mitzva, Rabbi Groner ad-

occasion of his reaching
maturity according to Jewish
tradition.
Steven recited — before a
congregation of close to 1,200
—the basic prayers and read
in its entirety the prophetic
portion for last Sabbath, in
Hebrew, from Amos 7:15.
On May 19, Steven will
have an aliya at Cong. Bnai
Israel, Northamption, Mass.,
where he attends the Clarke
School for the Deaf.
Steven's achievement rep-
resented the fruition of a
dream of his late father.
Mrs. Mitchell, who carried
on her husband's work,
helped form the first Jewish
education class in the Mid-
west for the hard of hearing.
It is sponsored by the United
Hebrew Schools.

Perceptual problems cause reading difficulties in

Hebrew too. Here, they not only affect the student's
academic ability, but his self-confidence as a Jew.
One-to-one specialized help; based on careful testing,

can be the means to happy Jewish participation.
