On Thursday, April 10, The Hillel at UCLA celebrated Joe ‘Dov’ Bruin’s B(e)ar Mitzvah in Kerkoff Grand Salon. Hillel’s a cappella group, Jewkbox, began the ceremony with their rendition of One Day by Matisyahu. The night continued with 90’s music and dancing, just like the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs we all used to attend. Prizes and party favors were handed out, games were played (our very own Tessa Nath and Elyssa Schlossberg won Pepsi-Cola!), a candle-lighting ceremony occurred, and a montage was played. The smile on his face and the excitement in his dancing clearly showed that Joe Bruin had a wonderful time at his party, and has accepted upon himself the responsibilities of becoming a man.
