The Bar Mitzvah and the Beast
The Bar Mitzvah
and the Beast
is the memoir of an ordinary family's
extraordinary journey across the United States on
bicycle. Amateur bike rider, father of three, and everyday
public school teacher Matt Biers-Ariel never dreamed of riding a
bike across America. But then his hard-to-impress teenage son,
Yonah, refused to have a Bar Mitzvah as he approached age thirteen.
So Matt, his wife Djina, Yonah, and little brother Solomon decided

of passage -- one that
would take them 3,804 miles by bicycle from the waters of the
Pacific Ocean, across the Rockies, through Midwest small towns, and
all the way to Washington D.C.
