Mazel Tov Yudi Matusof!


With much love and best wishes, we would like to congratulate Yehuda Leib (Yudi) Matusof on his recent Bar Mitzvah.  On August 27 and 28, Yudi celebrated his Bar Mitzvah with family and friends. His parents, Rabbi Menachem and Rochel Matusof, siblings Chanie Altein, Yossi, Mussie, Levi, Brochie, Avremy, Chaya Esther, and Shloimele, brother-in-law Dovid Altein, nephews Shloimele and Isroel Meir Mayer, and grandfather Rabbi and Chazan Berel Zaltzman were all in attendance.  Rabbi Zaltzman delighted the crowd with his wonderful signing in multiple languages.  A special thank you to those who came from out of town – including New Jersey, New York, Toronto, Edmonton, and Saskatoon – to celebrate his simcha.  Yudi you made us, your family and friends, very proud.
