We were so proud to celebrate with Board member Olga Garza Kauffman and her husband, Al Kauffman, the Bar Mitzvah of their son Marcos Nathan Kauffman at Temple Beth-El in San Antonio on Saturday, October 30!
Marcos did a beautiful job of leading the congregation in prayer and his reflections on Torah were inspiring and heartfelt. In calling on us to preserve God’s creation, Marcos praised the role that former City Councilwoman and Santuario Sisterfarm Board President María Antonietta Berriozábal has played in protecting San Antonio’s sole source of drinking water, the Edwards Aquifer. Marcos is a committed ecologist and has generously offered his volunteer services several times at Santuario Sisterfarm. After the service, we all enjoyed a delicious lunch and some great dancing!
