My name is Sally Shapiro and I will become a Bat Mitzvah on August 12, 2017.

I just finished 7thgrade at Larchmont Charter School this past June. I enjoy playing guitar, listening to music, and hanging out with my friends. My parents Julee and Kenny Shapiro and my older brother Henry Shapiro are very excited for me to chant from the Torah.

For my Bat Mitzvah project I am collecting essential items for Covenant House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless youth. If you would like to contribute new basic toiletries such as deodorant, hair ties, shaving cream, razors, soap, toothpaste, sunscreen, hand sanitizer and brand new baseball caps,  you can leave them in the box I set up in the Burton Way lobby, or email my mom at jshapiro@shap1.com

I am excited about my Bat Mitzvah and want to thank my family, Rabbi Basin, Cantor Weiss, Josh Goldberg, and my cousin Naomi Ortiz, for all their support in helping me prepare for this day.
