GOALKEEPER Noah Baxter broke his arm six weeks before his barmitzvah.
But, fortunately, the Allerton High School pupil’s cast was removed in time for his celebrations at Beth Hamidrash Hagadol.
Together with parents Simone and Adam and his siblings, 10-year-old Louis and Sienna, eight, who both study at Brodetsky Primary School, Noah welcomed guests from London and Manchester.
The weekend’s theme was Noah’s Diner, based around an American diner experience, because the Baxter family has enjoyed many holidays in the States.
Chelsea fan Noah enjoys playing on his Xbox.
Reuben Baker celebrated his barmitzvah on Shabbat at Childwall Synagogue.
The Manchester King David High School pupil is the son of Rachel and Martin Baker.
He has three younger sisters, Deena, Sheyna and Leora.
The shul was packed with guests from all over the world, including his uncle, who flew in from Australia.
Reuben plays for Wavertree Cricket Club and also plays the saxophone.
The celebrations continued on Sunday evening with a party in Manchester.
