I have been coming to Temple Emanuel my whole life. I attended preschool at the
Early Childhood Center, and then continued at the Day School until second grade.
I loved both experiences. I performed in over a dozen musicals at Temple Emanuel
through their Encore Arts Program. These experiences were among the most
joyous and impactful of my childhood.
On January 12th, 2018, I will be fortunate enough to celebrate my Bat Mitzvah at
Temple Emanuel with Rabbi Aaron, who has been my rabbi since I started at the
I now attend Paul Revere Charter Middle School, and I am in seventh grade. At
Paul Revere, I am a member of the string orchestra, a program that has been in
existence at Paul Revere for over 50 years. Along with playing the violin, I
continue to enjoy other types of performing such as singing, dancing, and acting. I
have also been playing AYSO soccer for the past five years.
Preparing for my Bat Mitzvah has taken a lot of hard work, and I could not have
done it without the help and guidance of Rabbi Aaron, Rabbi Bassin, Cantor Weiss, and Shelly Kamara
