Bar Mitzvah: Ryan Mendelsohn - May 13, 2017

My name is  Ryan Mendelsohn and my birth date is 01.23.4 - cool, huh? I am in the 7th grade at The Buckley School and my favorite subject is math. I don't have any brothers or sisters, and I kind of like it that way.  

I play most sports, and enjoy basketball the most.  I am a good student, however, I don't love to study. My favorite hobby is collecting sneakers, but now it is also my first business. I buy and sell cool ones! 

For my Bar Mitzvah project I am raising money for the Israeli Guide Dog Center. The center trains dogs to help soldiers who have lost their sight from the many wars in Israel.  I chose this because I love all dogs, and know what wonderful friends they can be.

I am grateful to my parents, Michelle and Jordin, for their love and support, and want to thank Rabbi Aaron, Rabbi Bassin and Kalanit Kamara for helping me become a Bar Mitzvah.
