It's A Hoot

We are deep in the process of getting Jake ready for his Bar Mitzvah, so it was with a great deal enjoyment I read an article from our Rabbi about a group of women in their 90's celebrate their Bat Mitzvahs.

It's from the New York Times and you can find it here.

My favorite quote is:
“Most people in their 90s, they just eat their three meals a day and are happy to be alive,” Rabbi Kutner said. “I think this shows that at any age you can set a challenge and meet it.”

A challenge, perhaps, but not all the women see it quite that way. “My first thought was boy, what a hoot!” said Millie Danziger Fromet, 90.

They sound like a fun group of gals and a force to be reckoned with. As Ms. Agin said “You’re doggone right we’re feisty.”
