Acrobats End With a Bar Mitzvah

The Bivsteisky brothers were invited to perform an acrobatic show for the Yavneh Camp in Los Angeles. It ended with their becoming Bar Mitzvah.

A day of circus fun at Yavneh Camp in Los Angeles had a surprise ending that none of the campers expected.

When the Bivsteisky brothers, trained circus acrobats, showed up for a performance at the camp, they told staff they are "one quarter Jewish."

Camp Director JJ Duchman quickly discovered that their mother's mother was Jewish, and informed them that they are Jewish. The two brothers said they had never had a Bar Mitzvah.

As the finale to their exciting acrobatic performance, 2 pairs of Tefillin were brought out, and Head Counselor Raziel Cohen along with Head Counselor Avremi Kievman, stepped up (literally) and used a stool to help the tall brothers don tefillin for the first time.

After the brothers recited the bracha on the microphone for all to hear, they were both lifted on chairs for a Bar Mitzvah celebration.

"It was an incredible sight, especially when the entire camp erupted in dancing amid resounding 'Mazal tovs!'" said Director JJ Duchman. "It was an amazing double celebration!"
