Ryan Weissman Bar Mitzvah – November 6, 2021

Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills

Hi, my name is Ryan Weissman. I am currently a 7th grader at Beverly Vista Middle School. I love playing sports like baseball, basketball and football. I also like art and playing my guitar. 

I have been writing letters to seniors through Letters Against Isolation for my Bar Mitzvah Project.  It has been a nice way to connect with people that don’t have a lot of family or friends, especially during Covid. I am so excited my Bar Mitzvah is almost here! 

I would love to thank my parents, Mark and Melissa Weissman, my brother Jordan and all of my family members for this opportunity. I would also like the thank Rabbi Aaron and Rabbi Bassin, Cantor Weiss and Shelly Kamara, for helping me train for my special day.

If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving. -Martin Luther King Jr
