bar mitzvah speech

Once again I am called upon today to represent the Board of Trustees at my synagogue, to make the presentation to a young man on the occasion of his bar mitzvah.

After the first time -- in which I was so unbelievably nervous -- I'm actually very comfortable standing in front of the congregation.  After the political upheaval we went through last year and the abuse the board members experienced when they spoke at meetings with the congregation, telling a young man he's wonderful and that his parents should be proud of him is a piece of cake.
