Harper Davis Bar Mitzvah – October 3, 2020

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

Hello, my name is Harper Davis. My parents are Clare and Mitchell Davis. I have a sister named Sloane and a dog named Melo. I am in 7th grade at Sierra Canyon School. My favorite subjects are math and English. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and am super passionate about basketball. 

For my Mitzvah project I worked with PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) where I made health kits for homeless people living in Los Angeles. This is important to me because some people treat them like they aren’t human. Which isn’t ok, and I want to make their lives a little better. I think that PATH makes a difference in the homeless community and impacts our city for the better. 

Thank you to Cantor Weiss, and Rabbi Aaron, Allison and Shelly for teaching me Hebrew, and Rabbi Sarah Basin for mentoring me. And of course thank you to my parents, Grandaddy, and Grandma for supporting me through this process.
