Shower them with sweetness

I have come to discover in my lifetime that my synagogue, Shomrei Torah, isn't like other synagogues. For one, I find it much homier. Maybe because it's "my" synagogue, or maybe it's just the closeness or size of the congregation.

I mentioned to Adam that on Tuesday night, I was going over to weekend Bat-Mitzvah girl Amber's house to make little candy bags to throw at her after her Haftorah.

Google lets me know I'm not crazy, but I am curious to see who else has this custom.

Throwing candy after the Haftorah of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is...

I *think* this was done at a synagogue that my cousins go to in WPB. The other thought I had was that it was done at a synagogue where my cousins go in Cooper City. That's also the synagogue where one of my roommates went. But I may be thinking of that one because I was at his aufruf -- where it's a much more common tradition to throw candy. I know that my old synagogue up here throws candy for that. I can't speak for my new one -- I haven't been to many non-High Holiday services.

yeah, people definitely do it at aufrufs, but as a 22 year old, I've been to more Bar and Bat Mitzvahs than aufrufs for sure. Twenty-fold.
