Noah’s Bar Mitzvah, on November 12, 2009, was truly a wonderful and meaningful event filled with joy and profound emotions.  It was fantastic to have all our closest friends and family around us, and for Noah to have all his school friends and many of his teachers present.  Thank you all again for sharing this wonderful event with us!

Lindy ordered two hundred and fifty small Blue Spruce Saplings – magnificent and hardy pine species that does extremely well in Canadian winters.

After the Bar Mitzvah, about twenty of the saplings were left uncollected.  We did a “planting expedition” in the G. Ross Lord Ravine behind our house.

It will be a great pleasure to see these trees grow over the years in the same way we see our (not so) little boy grow year after year, and remember the joy of his Bar Mitzvah.

About Michel Botman

Michel Botman was born in Belgium, where visual arts have always flirted with the limits of reality. In the eighties, Michel Botman started exploring the first tools to manipulate images though computers. For about 15 years, Michel Botman worked throughout Europe in the emerging field of Computer Applications for the Graphic Arts. Extensive experience in Digital Imaging allowed Michel to move into the field of computerized systems for Diagnostic Imaging. As VP Sales & Marketing for eSys Medical and later with Eclipsys, Michel Botman always remained dedicated to the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of his career. At the present time, Michel Botman is refocusing his life towards graphic arts. “I studied photography in Europe, but never had time to practice it enough. Life took me on other paths towards computer technologies and running a business. I enjoyed it very much, but I also love art. I always keep my eyes open for exciting opportunities and people that touch my heart.” Michel Botman lives in Toronto with his wife Lindy and son Noah.
