Lucy White - September 10, 2022
Parashat Ki Teitzei

Lucy White is the daughter of Daniel and Jacquelyn White, and the sister of Michael ("Mikey") White.  She is an 8th grade student at Blake Middle School in Medfield.  Lucy enjoys horseback riding, singing, writing and baking.  For her Mitzvah project she baked and sold dog treats and then used the money that she raised to purchase supplies and a gift card for the Animal Rescue League of Boston.  To Lucy, becoming a Bat Mitzvah means reaching a new level of age and freedom.  It means to properly represent herself as a Jewish adult, a trustworthy friend, a kind sibling and a helpful daughter.  Lucy is grateful for her family, Rabbi Karen and Rabbi Micah, and her tutor, Nancy Mollitor, for all of their support on her journey to become a Bat Mitzvah.
