ABOUT OUR BAT MITZVAH, RILEY LEVIN
Riley is a 7th grader at Eastmont Middle School in Sandy. She has been a part of the Kol Ami family since her family moved here when she was three years old and she joined Yeladim. She’s an adventurous spirit—always willing to try something new. She spends her free time skiing with her dad at Alta, performing in theatrical productions around the valley, and dancing with South Valley Creative Dance. She has a strong entrepreneurial flair and sells her designs on Etsy while also maintaining a reputation as the neighborhood’s most sought after babysitter. She wants to go to school for political science and have a career as a speech writer. She looks forward to becoming a bat mitzvah in June and joining the ranks of Jewish adulthood.

J STREET UTAH BRIEFING & DISCUSSION: WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT'S NEXT?

TONIGHT, Wednesday, June 9th
7:00 pm on Zoom

We will be going over what happened last month—both in Israel and in Congress. We'll look at the ways this time was very different from the last Israel-Hamas confrontation in 2014, including ways that made it possible to bring the war to a much quicker and less deadly conclusion. We'll also look at how the very different Washington-Jerusalem dynamic—one shaped in large measure by J Street—has impacted the process of forming Israel's next government, which will hopefully, and apparently, not be led by Likud and Benjamin Netanyahu.
ALL UTAHNS AGES 12 AND OLDER CAN NOW GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE

The COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic and get back to normal. Vaccinations for people 12+ will be required for in-person High Holiday services so schedule your appointment today!
