March 13, 2010: A Bar Mitzvah celebration at The Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage
On Saturday, March 13, a very special 5:30 PM service will be held to celebrate the bar mitzvah of Noah Ritz. Noah is the son of Steven and Sharon Golove Ritz of Cherry Hill, N.J. The service will be followed by an oneg before the family and guests move on to Vineland for a reception.

Noah Ritz is the great grandson of Ed Golove, who grew up in Woodbine and became a bar mitzvah at the Brotherhood Synagogue in 1924. Golove, now 98 and living in Connecticut, has spoken fondly of his young life in Woodbine. Now frail and unable to travel, he keeps a framed picture of the synagogue in his residence. His granddaughter, Sharon Golove Ritz, and her husband thought it would be meaningful for their son Noah to read from the Torah in the same synagogue, which is now known as the Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage. The Ritz Family will also provide their own Torah, which was brought to the United States by Steven Ritz great grandfather. In Hebrew there is an expression LDor VDor, which means from generation to generation. And so it will be.
