Over the weekend, we had our Manginah generation's first Bat Mitzvah performance! Four of us stayed over for Shabbat and got to know the Bat Mitzvah girl and her family (including Brandeis' very own Bryan Flatt '12), and then the rest of us arrived on Saturday morning to add to the celebration and festivities! First, we sang the guests into the social hall and then, for the first time, we sang Hava Nagilah (the Hora) and led all of the friends and family in the traditional "grapevine" dance that accompanies the Hora. Then, we sang some of our favorite songs during lunch and dessert, and got ourselves treated to some fantastic, catered food! It was a first for many of us and a unique performance for the group!
Last night, on Sunday (12/2), Manginah had the privilege of opening for MIT's Techiyah's Fall Semester Show: The Case of the Missing Menorah. We had so much fun singing for this new crowd of people, and we were thoroughly impressed and entertained by Techiyah's performance, skits and parodies included! A shout out to the group for making us feel so welcome, and even inviting us to their after party! We hope to keep in touch.
