    Perfect photo! Your mom’s hairdo is killing me along with her false eyelashes, arch of her eyebrows and pockets on her high waisted polyester ensemble. Your hair is sheer 70’s perfection. The 10 Commandments have never looked better.

      Ten commandments or the Torah?? Knowing my faith & Bar Mitzvahs in general, I’d say Torah. I wonder if it was made from plastic and kept as a keep sake after the party??

      Great photo.

        I originally said Torah when I first commented on this photo on the AWMOK Facebook page but then Zeppy said Ten Commandments and it being his photo I just went with it. Definitely Torah is what first hit me ( nd I’m of the faith to know but by no means the practicing authority). I certainly hope it was made of plastic (and that it was kept as a keepsake).

    Oh my! Being compared to Robert Culp! I had such a crush on him when I was a kid (right around the time of my Bar Mitz). Hey, the Ten Commandments/Torah on the cake was made out of Plaster of Paris…such a kitsch material!
