My goal is to be a surgeon one day. For my mitzvah project I wanted to do something that was related to Parkinson’s disease to honor my grandmother who passed away this year. I volunteered all summer at a dance class for patients with Parkinson’s. Every week I participated in the class, interacted with all of the students, and helped with whatever they needed.
I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Rabbi Bassin, Cantor Weiss, Shelly Kamara, and Karen Porper for all of the time and energy they put into helping me prepare for my Bat Mitzvah.
