Cont'd from Our Leadership page:  

A very positive part of our Jewish experience at TOR is being a member of a Chavurah. Our Chavurah has 7 families, with kids ranging from 5 – 15. We get together several times during the year outside of Synagogue; celebrating holidays, instilling Jewish traditions, and just having fun! It’s important with such a diverse community in the Sacramento region that our children get together with other Jewish families to carry on our Jewish customs and faith. As a member of the Temple’s board, I’d like to continue to work on making TOR a community; a place where everyone feels welcome, where our kids can share common Jewish interests, and where we develop our spirituality.

Or Rishon Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

Oliver Smith

On June 10, 2017 Oliver Smith (Hebrew name: Baruch Aviv ben Leah) will be called-up to read from the Torah as a Bar Mitzvah. Oliver is a 7th grade student at Sutter Middle School in Folsom, where he maintains a 4.0 GPA. He has a variety of interests and hobbies including camping, coin collecting, and magic. He enjoys learning about the latest advances in technology and built his own computer from parts. As a member of TOR and a Star rank in Boy Scouts, he participates in community service throughout the year. For his Bar Mitzvah service project he worked to clean litter from our local trails. Oliver is excited to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah with his TOR family and friends.

 

Hannah MarminsWe look forward to taking part in the celebration of Hannah’s Bat Mitzvah on August 19th, 2017. Hannah’s preparation for this significant day has been admirable. We’ve seen her determination and persistence grow along with our pride and joy. Hannah is an amazing young woman. She is an eclectic creative with a kind soul. Hannah loves art, music, dance, fashion, design and anything that happens on or near the water. Her Mitzvah Project is raising awareness and fundraising with Girlup.org to give girls access to education where they have none. She is a fierce advocate for those who don’t have a voice or that face discrimination. Hannah's mitzvah project embodies her passion. Mazel tov, Hannah Rose!
