Join us this Shabbat
as we celebrate the Bat Mitzvah of Olivia Yelen
Services will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Hi! My name is Olivia Yelen and I go to the Wyoming Valley West Middle School. In school I like to stay active by participating in activities and groups such as Executive Board and National Junior Honors Society. I also play soccer and run track, but I mostly play field hockey, for which I recently received the honor of being named Captain of the Junior High team!  
I have been working hard these past months leading up to my special day. I would love for you to join me and my family as I am called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah!

Join us next Shabbat, September 28th
as we celebrate Naomi Wharton's Bat Mitzvah
Services will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Hello, I'm Naomi Wharton. My parents are Shelly Lebenson & Richard Wharton. I have two dogs that I love very much, Maggie and Roscoe. I also attend the Valley Middle School in Sugarloaf. My favorite and only sport is softball and I’ve been playing for 7 years now. For my Bat-Mitzvah project I am going to be donating supplies to the SPCA. Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved dogs. Becoming a Bat-Mitzvah means a lot to me and my grandparents! I would be delighted if you would join me and my family on my special day.
