Noor Houriani’s Bat Mitzvah, May 19, 2018

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

My name is Noor Nora Houriani. I am currently in 7th grade at Hawthorne School where I recently won the Aristonian Award for academic excellence. I like to play piano and tennis and I enjoy spending time with my friends.

My parents are Mehrdad and Noushin Houriani. My siblings are triplets and I have two brothers and one sister. Their names are Amir, Rodney, and Arianna. We also have a big German Shepherd named Maverick who is one and a half years old.

For my mitzvah project, I am volunteering at SOVA – a community food and resource program – to help sort and package food items for those in need. I want to be able to help people in my community to the best of my ability.


In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
