The historic Wilshire Temple is a breathtakingly beautiful location for a bar mitzvah, and a great place for family portraits before the temple service. This young bar mitzvah proudly shows off his talit in front of the ark while standing on the bimah, just before his bar mitzvah service in front of friends and family. Portraits like this have to be taken quickly, as the bar mitzvah is preparing to read from the Torah to share what he's learned during his preparation. Bar mitzvah services have many personal touches, including speeches from close family members and a personal message from the bar mitzvah himself.
Location: Wilshire Temple, 3663 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010.
