Mazal Tov – Livia Adler-Maranhao celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on Sept. 4 at Temple Beth David in Narragansett. Livia is the daughter of Jason Maranhao and Dori Adler and sister to Brayden. Her grandfather, Rabbi Ethan Adler, officiated at the service. Livia is the granddaughter of Ethan and Lorrie Adler, the late Wendy Adler and Ronald and Jean Maranhao. She is the great-granddaughter of the late Edward and Gertrude Adler and the late Samuel and Lillian Osterman.
Livia’s Bat Mitzvah tzedakah project was called “Liv For A CAWS.” She raised more than $700 by selling dog treats and saving money for a year. She donated the money to CAWS – Companion Animal Welfare Society – to pay for a dog surgery and purchase much needed clinic supplies. She graduated from The Cohen Religious School at Temple Torat Yisrael and was the recipient of the Wendy B. Adler award.
