Air Date: July 15, 2012
Guests: Ardie Wandel, Roz Kirkel
Topics: In the early 1960s, as the request of Rabbi Samuel Adelman, z”l, Ardie Wandel began helping Denver’s young boys prepare for their Bar Mitzvahs. To be a son or daughter of the commandments, in Ardie’s view, is actually a life-long process – not a one-day event. Ardie shares with us highlights of his 50-year career as a molder of young boys and girls (as well as adults) and explores the history and evolution of the Bnai Mitzvah ceremonies.
