About Olivia
Hello to everyone, I am Olivia Allen. I absolutely love softball. I try to practice 3 to 4 times a week. I play on a club softball team called the Dirt Dawgs, and a travel softball team called the Panthers.

I have two siblings. A twin brother named Lucas who is sharing a B’Mitzvah with me, and a sister named Abby. Lucas is 12 years old and Abby is 10 years old. I am the middle child. Lucas is two minutes older than me. We live with my parents Marni and Jonathan. We have a dog Posie who is an adorable four year old Portuguese Water Dog.

I am a seventh grader at Brown Middle School in Newton. My friends say that I am very athletic. My favorite subject is probably math because I like how you’re either right or wrong. Becoming Bat Mitzvah means becoming a Jewish adult and gaining more responsibility. It also taught me that I need to work my hardest in order to succeed and feel good about being prepared.

About Lucas
Dear TBE community, my name is Lucas Allen, a 12 year old who goes to Brown Middle school in Newton. I love playing sports. This season I’m playing flag football, baseball, and cross country. I like sports because I feel like it brings out the best in me and I have to work really hard to achieve what I want. For example, in Cross Country last season I did extra running outside of practice and dropped my time by over a minute from the first race to the last race.

I live with my parents Marni and Jonathan, my 10 year old sister Abby, and my twin sister Olivia who I’m sharing my B’Mitzvah with. I also have a 4 year old Portuguese Water Dog Posie who is adorable, silly, and mischievous.
In school my favorite subject is Social studies because I really like reading historical fiction books and learning about the past.
In becoming Bar Mitzvah I feel more connected to the prayers and our community. I feel like I understand the service better and can follow what I studied.
