Jacob is collecting beanies, hats, stuffed animals, and monetary donations to distribute to this organization in memory of his two grandfathers.
Noah Behrens will be called to the Torah on January 21, 2023 at Temple Beth Sholom.
For Noah’s Bar Mitzvah project he chose to collect gently used tennis racquets to donate to The Inspiring Children Foundation, Mark Hennessy Community Outreach & Tennis Program. Noah says “Tennis is a big part of my life so I wanted to make the sport of tennis and all its benefits available to those who don’t have access.” Noah collected over two dozen racquets.
Jacob Garber was called to the Torah on December 3, 2022 at Temple Beth Sholom.
Ezra Blum was called to the Torah on October 29, 2022 at Temple Beth Sholom.
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I have partnered with “Bikes for Kids”— a bike reward program that provides bicycles to third and fourth-grade Title 1 students. Utilizing 3 character-building books and required essays, Bikes for Kids builds clarity, confidence, responsibility, kindness, and determination.
This foundation has impacted over 61,000 economically disadvantaged children since 2002. Their focus is to provide character-building books and classroom instruction while rewarding the student’s reading and completed essay with a bike and helmet.
With the support of sponsors from across the United States, they have impacted Title 1 students in hundreds of underserved elementary schools.
