Kaplan Quote of the Week

Weekly Quote from Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, z"l (1881-1983)
Last Sabbath a week ago (March 18) I inaugurated the ceremony of the Bat Mitzvah at the S.A.J. Meeting House (41 West 86 St.) about which more details later [Ed. note: Kaplan, in fact, provided no further details in his diary]. My daughter Judith was the first one to have her Bat Mitzvah celebrated there.
