My favorite thing about being Jewish is being able to celebrate holidays with my family and eat food that I love with the people that I love. To become a Bar Mitzvah means that I start to take responsibility for my actions and become a more independent person overall. In Sheva I have learned more of what it means to be a Jewish adult and how to maintain Jewish traditions.

I did several things for my Mitzvah Project but the most meaningful one to me was serving food to sick people and their families at the Hospitality House in Charlotte. This was meaningful because it was amazing to see how happy the food made everyone and that was very rewarding. I will continue engaging in my Judaism by attending events with NFTY and going to more Friday night services.
