Jonas Lepp Bar Mitzvah – February 13, 2021

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

I’m an 8th grader that goes to LACES and this is my second try at my bar mitzvah due to Covid-19. I like sports, reading, and food. I’m the middle child of three.  I have an older brother, Aden,  and a younger sister, Hannah. My parents are Debby and Marc.

My bar mitzvah project is on gun violence prevention.  I am working in a group and our goal is to raise awareness.  I went to Gabby Giffords talk at the temple to learn more and she made me realize that this is a real problem that my generation has to deal with.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Rabbi Bassin, Cantor Weiss, and Shelly Kamara for helping me with my bar mitzvah and tolerating my abominable work habits.

If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done. Rita Mae Brown
