Celebrations in Hawaii can take place anywhere from the beach to the slope of a volcano.

Minnie Marvit stepped up to the bimah in Hawaii to celebrate her Bat Mitzvah. This "girl," however, was a 92-year-old bubbe. "I wanted to do this for some time, but I waited until I moved to Hawaii," she said. "I feel so at home here." Marvit is a member of Congregation Sof Ma'Arav ("The End of the West") in Honolulu, a Conservative synagogue that prides itself on educating "children" and preparing them for b'nai mitzvah.
