At Beth Emet, we celebrate the simcha by sharing a bit about our recent b'nei mitzvah students with the entire congregation as a welcome to the "adult" community. Let us wish "mazel tov" to the following:

Hi, my name is Eli. I go to Haven Middle School. I don’t have a favorite subject, I like them all :). When I'm not in school I like to spend time with family and friends and code. My bar mitzvah project is helping to get composting started at Beth Emet. You can read more about my bar mitzvah project by clicking here. I chose that because taking care of the earth is very important to me. I'm looking forward to my bar mitzvah because I will get to use everything I’ve learned over the past year or two.

Hi, my name is Eli. I go to Haven Middle School. My favorite subject is math. When I'm not in school I like to build model airplanes. My bar mitzvah project is collecting books and supplies for Books and Breakfast. I chose that because I like to read. I'm looking forward to my bar mitzvah because I am proud of all the work I’ve put into practicing my Torah portion and prayers and want to see them in action during the service.
