Justin Alexander, grandson of Areve and Steven Alexander, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in grand style Memorial Day Weekend. Reading from the Torah, participating in the service, and speaking of this â€˜journeyâ€™ to the congregation, Justin was in perfect control and his natural leadership, sense of humor and compassion was apparent.
At a luncheon reception at the Nashua Club, Meiselman family representatives from the Washington, DC area (Alyson Meiselman, Gail and Dean Osgood, Sandy and John Walter and Sharon Kolstad) enjoyed sitting with the Boston crew, (Sandy Deiner, Mel Lurie and Marilyn Brachman Hoffman). While catching up on family comings and going at our table, Mel Lurie told us the success his daughter Joelle is having in New York. We viewed a video of her singing talent!
It was great to see Areveâ€™s brother, our cousin Merom Brachman from Columbus Ohio, in Boston for this wonderful family event. Saturday evening the family, neighbors and Justinâ€™s friends gathered at the familyâ€™s home for a very warm evening of family stories and fun.
