Adrienne Tiernan Bat Mitzvah – January 14, 2023

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

Hi, I’m Adrienne Tiernan. My parents are Jill and Ben, and I have an older sister, Dani and we have a dog, Chandler Bing.

My family joined Temple Emanuel when we moved to Beverly Hills when I was two years old. I attended preschool here and have attended Hebrew school every year since – even during Covid! My sister Dani became a Bat Mitzvah here in 2021 and I am happy to continue the tradition.I’m a 7th grader at Beverly Vista Middle School where I play for the school soccer team and I’m on the Principal’s Honor Roll. I also play soccer on the Beverly Hills AYSO G13 Extra Team.
When I’m not studying or playing soccer, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, making edits of my favorite TV shows, and dancing with my sister.

For my mitzvah project, I am holding a clothing drive. This is important to me because there are so many people that go without basic daily needs and useful things. I want to help, provide for them.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss and Allison Bluestein, and Temple Emanuel, for providing me with a loving and supportive community, along with a strong foundation in my Jewish faith.
