B’nai Mitzvah

Eliana Boling

ELIANA BOLING, daughter of Kim and Tim Boling, will celebrate becoming a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, Nov. 19 with Congregation Chaverim at the Tucson Jewish Community Center.
She is the granddaughter of Marcia and Ken Light of Tucson, Carmen and John Boling of Bloomington, Ind., and the late Judy Williams of Shirley, Ind. She is the great-granddaughter of Betty Light of Gunnison, Colo.
Ellie attends Orange Grove Middle School. She enjoys cooking, baking, gardening and working out at the JCC. For her mitzvah project, she volunteered at Casa Maria Soup Kitchen; raised funds for MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger; wrote letters to elected officials asking them to protect SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) funds; and with her grandmother compiled a cookbook of Jewish recipes, “Kugels and Latkes and Briskets, Oh My,” on sale through Congregation Chaverim, with proceeds benefiting MAZON.
