My name is Nathan Dudley and I am in 7th grade at Brentwood School. I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, volleyball, and hanging out with my friends.

I love to challenge myself and play board games with family and friends. My parents are Laura and Randy Dudley. My brother’s name is Jack who is 17, and my sister’s name is Emma who is 14. My dog’s name is Lola and she is 10 years old. I am honored to be sharing my special day with one of my best friends and cousin, Dylan Unger. Dylan, I am so happy we are sharing this special day together.

For my Mitzvah Project, Dylan and I will be holding a Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the Good+ Foundation. The Good+ Foundation partners with a national network of leading programs to break the cycle of family poverty though the power of donated goods and services. Over the past 17 years, Good+ has donated almost $42 million in children’s items to over a national network of over 125 antipoverty programs.

I would like to thank Rabbi Aaron, Cantor Weiss, Allison Bluestein, and my family for helping me prepare for my B’nai Mitzvah.
