My Bar Mitzvah Project

Everyone having a bar or bat mitzvah at Temple Kol Ami must prepare a B'nai Mitzvah project. You can choose to be involved with any Jewish Social Service Agency or Community Organization. For my Bar Mitzvah project, I chose to help out at the Temple Kol Ami Grade 5 Hebrew Class. I went regularly for 10 weeks to help the students read and learn their Hebrew vocabulary. I also acted as a resource to the students, answering any questions they had.

We had my Bar Mitzvah party at Fontana Gardens. They did a fantastic job. I allowed myself to be photographed with my family here - before the Bar Mitzvah.
