A coming of age story featuring three generations with a love-filled bond

Grandpa was never bar mitzvahed; it was wartime, and life was difficult. It's been a regret his whole life. Many years later, it's his grandson's time to go through the Jewish ritual of coming of age. The father suggests that they be bar mitzvahed together. They study together, recite together, and celebrate together.
