Or Rishon Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

Emily Mastman

Hi my name is Emily Mastman, my Bat Mitzvah is February 18th, 2017. Temple Or Rishon has been a welcoming community for me since I was four years old and now I’m in 7th grade. When I grow up I am interested in photography or film making at UCLA. I can’t wait to reach my goal of becoming a Bat Mitzvah this February and I’m beyond ex-cited to share this achievement with my family and friends.

Cade and Cody DePeel Bar MitzvahHi! We are Cade and Cody DePeel. We are twins and live with our mom, dad, and older brother Joshua. We go to Gold River Discovery Center and just started the 8th grade. Our B'nai Mitzvah is October 29th. We enjoy playing video games, visiting civil war battlefields and traveling. In our spare time we like hanging out with our pets and watching Star Trek movies. We are excited about our upcoming B'nai Mitzvah and hope you can join us!

Evan Schroeder

Hi. My name is Evan Schroeder and my Bar Mitzvah is January 21, 2017. I've been at Temple Or Rishon since third grade and I'm now in seventh grade. Two of my favorite activities are playing basketball and guitar. I also like helping my dad and mom cook or bake. I'm very excited to reach the milestone of becoming a Bar Mitzvah. I'm also excited to share the day with family and friends. 

Molly PictureMolly Guerzon is celebrating her Bat Mitzvah on December 17th, 2016. Molly loves animals, wolves especially, and is a very talented artist. When she isn’t going to school or reading, she loves to ride horses and take care of Po, the pig, at Blackberry Creek Animal Farm Sanctuary. Molly is a great addition to the seventh grade class, always offering thoughtful opinions to class discussions. When she gets older, her goal is to be a published writer of fiction. We congratulate Molly as she becomes a Bat Mitzvah.
