Hello, Temple Beth Elohim! I am Aleah Nissenbaum. Being on stage makes me feel happy. I love to do theater. I am the comedian in my family and I always get someone to laugh. I am also the middle child out of two siblings. My older sister Talia is 14 years old, and my younger brother Aaron is 10 years old. I have a black lab named Ember who is 2 years old. My Mom’s name is Illana and my Dad’s name is Neil. We are the Nissenbaums!
I am a seventh grader at Wellesley Middle School, and my favorite subject is chorus because I love that I am able to sing, but also I love my teachers! It is always so much fun.
Having a Bat Mitzvah is a lot of work but it’s worth it. I am happy that I got through all the hard work because now I am going to be an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community. Community is important. When there is a need, having a community to surround you with support helps you get through difficult times. For my service project, my family helped to welcome Ukrainian refugee families to the U.S. Not only did I learn about their struggle in having to leave their homeland and adjust to a new place, but I got to know Olena, Masha and Arina as friends. I look forward to having them celebrate my bat mitzvah with me!
