Clara Davidson Bat Mitzvah – November 23, 2019

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

I am a recent graduate of Brawerman East Elementary School (Wilshire Blvd. Temple). In my free time I love to volunteer at El Camino Ranch in Redlands, CA. I love animals, especially horses. I have three dogs and I love to sing and play the piano. I am also a passionate environmentalist who cares deeply about removing plastic, Styrofoam, and other harmful matter from our daily lives.

For my mitzvah project I am raising awareness in all of my various communities towards mass plastic waste. Plastic is a giant problem that literally will never go away. I am also raising money to protect the forests and combat climate change. Lowering our carbon footprint can make a difference in this world. Stand For Trees is a global organization that protects forests and wildlife. I strongly believe that we all need to take care of our earth and think about how our actions will impact future generations! By Standing For Trees we will protect our earth and all living beings on it by conserving the trees that provide us the oxygen we need to breathe.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss and my parents for helping me to prepare for my Bat Mitzvah, and to my brother, Izzy, for supporting me. (edited)
