Hi, I am Justin Wolfe, I’m 13 and I go to Beverly Vista School. I love animals, science and history. My parents are Dr. Michele Kalt and Freddy Wolfe. I have an older brother, Brandon, who is in his sophomore year of Beverly High, and I have a younger sister, Sienna, who is in 6th grade.
I am sharing my Bar Mitzvah with some children who were killed in the Holocaust and never had a chance to have their own Bar Mitzvah. My Grandmother was 13 when she went into Auschwitz, my age! Her two 7 year old brothers Lazlo and Georgy were taken to Dr. Mengele’s twin experiment camps and never made it out. So I am happy to keep their memory alive, and bring them up to the Bimah with me.
For my mitzvah project, I interviewed the Mayor of Beverly Hills, on how we kids can help with the water crisis. I also went down town walking thru the homeless camps and brought hot food and water to the hungry.
I would like to thank My mom, Cantor Lizzie, Rabbi Aaron and Rabbi Geller for all their help and support in preparing me for my Bar Mitzvah. It’s been pretty fun.
