B'nai Mitzvah Summer 2012

Meet Our Newest Young Adults

NoahNoah Levy will be entering the 7th grade at Lamuth Middle School in Painesville Township. He really enjoys playing the guitar and Lacrosse. Noah is becoming a Bar Mitzvah because he wants to read from the Torah scroll without vowels.

zachZach Levy enjoys playing the keyboard and practricing Taekwondo. In fact, he earned his black belt in June. Zachary is becoming a Bar Mitzvah because of all the extra privileges you earn to help with the congregation’s work. In September, he will also be in the 7th grade at Lamuth Middle School.

As a tzedakah project for their B’nai Mitzvah, Zachary and Noah have chosen to support the Project Hope Homeless Shelter in Lake County. If you would like to help them support Project Hope, please bring donations to the temple. They suggest: breakfast bars, cereal, paper plates, plastic flatware, deodorant, plastic sandwich bags, toilet paper, sugar, tissues, and juice mixes like Kool-Aid.

At the end of every Religious School day, Zach and his brother join the Rabbi and play HaTikva on their instruments. All Religious School students are encouraged to bring their musical instruments to play HaTikva at the end of the service with Zach and Noah.

MaxMax Weltman will be entering the 8th grade, in September, at Mayfield Middle School. His favorite subject is Language Arts because he likes to write about different topics.
