Kabbalat Mitzvah

Eliza Edgerton

November 12, 2022

Parents: Gabrielle and Peter Edgerton

I go to Nichols Middle School, and I’m really excited about my Kabbalat Mitzvah because I’ll be able to connect more with Judaism and my Jewish family. My favorite subject in school is language arts, and some of my hobbies include reading, making jewelry, and taking care of my plants. My gemilut chasadim project is to make and sell my resin jewelry to earn money to fully stock a free food fridge for a month (or longer)!
