About Rachel:
My name is Rachel Di Cori and I attend Glen Rock Middle School. I was born on August 26, 2007 in Rome, Italy. My favorite subject in school is Spanish. My favorite hobby is playing soccer and I grew up loving this sport. I am thankful for my friends and my loving family. I am proud of the Jewish education I’ve received at the Glen Rock Jewish Center and the Fair Lawn Jewish Center. I would like to thank Rabbi Salston, Rabbi Tow, Ellen Wertheim, and Estelle Haberman for helping me throughout my Bat Mitzvah journey. I am looking forward to continuing my Jewish education even further.
