My favorite things about being Jewish are the food and being part of the community. Ever since preschool at CJP, I have loved Challah. Potato latkes are pretty good too! I have made such amazing friends at Religious School and at my camp, 6 Points Sports Academy.
Becoming a Bat Mitzvah taught me that I can do anything when I put my mind to something and work hard. Now that I am a Jewish adult, I plan to go Hebrew High, attend more NFTY events and continue to go to my camp, to live my Jewish values.
When I was in second grade, my Religious School class visited the Sunrise community. We sang with the residents and it made my day to see them so happy. Ever since that day, I always told my parents that for my Mitzvah project, I wanted to volunteer with seniors so that is what I did! I spent time at the Oasis Senior Center. I had a lot of fun, laughing with them and playing games. They even taught me how to play Rummy Q.
