Calder Kite Bar Mitzvah – November 12, 2022

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills


I am a 7th grader at Westmark School and I am interested in game design. My parents are Brian and Miura Kite, I have a 16-year-old sister named Austen and I love spending time with my dog Mylo.

For my mitzvah project I’m interested in working with animals. For example volunteering with No Kill Los Angeles making dog toys and treats to provide to the animals as they await adoption, which is what my sister did for her mitzvah project.  Or helping walk dogs with Wags & Walks.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss, Allison Bluestein, and Laurie Goodman for all their help.
