“A silver lining for this unprecedented time: most people never have pictures from their actual Bar/Bat Mitzvah. With screenshots, Abigail does!” – David Magness

“Abigail, you are an inspiration to all of us!!! You did a magnificent job at your Bat Mitzvah!” – Mar Lopez

“Fabulous. Congratulations to Abigail and family. Kol Hakavod to all that participated. To Rabbi and all the volunteers it was a beautiful morning and I hope that Abigail was able to cherish every moment knowing that her whole congregational family was watching. I shared tears with her and her family. I expect Abigail will come back next year to share her long Haftarah and I hope Abigail and her family read all of our comments.” – Carol Albert

“What a fabulous job on her Haftarah and it wasn’t short! Maybe even a Rabbi or Cantor in training! She has a lovely voice and chants well!! Mazel tov! Great job Abigail! I love the balloon participants.” – Nina
