BAR MITZVAH – Jacob Ian Levine was called to the Torah as a Bar Mitzvah on April 16 in a ceremony at the Casino at Roger Williams Park. Jacob is the son of Lisa and Jonathan Levine of Coventry. His brothers are Ryan and Benjamin.
Jacob has taken his studies very seriously and has genuinely included the Torah in his heart and his life. His parents are thrilled to know Jacob is sincere in his faith and religion.
Jacob’s tzedakah project was influenced by spending time with his grandfathers and great-grandfather, enjoying their company and talking about sports. Jacob has chosen to volunteer to assist the elderly, reading the sports pages to them or just chatting and keeping them company. Jacob wants to make a difference in their lives in a positive way.
The family, members of West Bay Community Jewish Center, is grateful to Rabbi Richard Perlman, Susan Sugerman, the Hebrew School principal, and the dedicated teachers whose patience and encouragement has had a significant impact on Jacob’s life, well beyond the classroom.
