Mazel Tov to Our B'nai Mitzvah

Carolyn Kelly, daughter of Paul & Debbie Kelly, sister of Michelle Kelly, granddaughter of Ellen & Mickey Simon, and niece of Richard Simon and Bruce Simon, will become a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, May 30. Carolyn is a 7th grader at Bala Cynwyd Middle School. For her mitzvah project, Carolyn volunteered at the Starfinder Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to using soccer for social change and to teach leadership skills to kids who live in underserved communities around the Greater Philadelphia area. Carolyn did a fundraiser for college scholarships for attendees and collected donation items as well. In her free time, Carolyn loves playing soccer (and basically all sports), baking, doing art, and hanging out with her friends.

Agatha Parrott, daughter of Suzanne Newman & Lou Parrott and sister of Holland Parrott, will become a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, June 13. Agatha is a rising 8th grader at Germantown Friends School. For her mitzvah project, Agatha volunteered at the Rodeph Shalom Mitzvah Meals, where she helped prepare meals for congregants who cannot get to RS easily. Her favorite part of the experience was slicing vegetables and knowing how happy a recipient of a mitzvah meal would be once they received a meal that she helped prepare.

Reach Out to RS!
