Ronan McKiernan Bar Mitzvah – November 5, 2022

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

Hi, I’m Ronan. I’m a 7th grader at Mirman School. My hobbies include gymnastics, piano, coding and Tai Chi. I have a sister, Nyah, who is 10 years old, and a 22 year old brother, Conor. I am also blessed with two very amazing parents, my dad Kieran and my mother Janna.

I plan on creating a Mitzvah project centered around supporting our senior citizens. I feel connected with this endeavor even more so because I have a grandpa with Alzheimer’s. I hope to learn more about these countless important people in the senior community and find positive ways to engage with them.

I am indebted to Rabbi Aaron, Shelly Kamara, Karen Porper and Cantor Weiss for their support given to me for my Bar Mitzvah.

There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality. – Jonas Salk
