I am currently in 7th grade at El Rodeo Middle School. I enjoy coin, rock, and mineral collecting, as well as backpacking and camping. My parents are Jennifer and Michael Carden. I have two older siblings, Dylan and Emma.
For my mitzvah project I have been going to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition and serve food to the homeless. This organization makes sure that the people don’t go hungry. Along with serving food I have also started to help prepare the food.
I would like to thank Rabbi Basin, Cantor Weiss, Pete Siegel, Shelly Kamara, and Karen Porper for helping me prepare for my Bar Mitzvah.
