An auspicious evening

In 1952, the Norwegian chapter of B'nai Brith International was established. My grandfather was a member while he was alive, and my father has been a member for many years, serving in the council.

Some years ago, my father asked me whether I wanted to attend the lecture and dinner accompanying the meetings, and I accepted. Since then, I've attended most meetings. A year and a half or so back, I was first approached with regards to membership, but being too young, I wasn't eligible.

That all changed October last, with my 25th birthday.

Today, I was initiated as a member, with my father as one of my sponsors. An auspicious evening indeed!
