BREANNA LEAH YALEN, daughter of Ilene and Allen Yalen, will celebrate becoming a bat mitzvah on Saturday, Oct. 24 at Temple Emanu-El.
She is the granddaughter of Joan and Stuart Brodsky, and Sandra and William Yalen, all of Tucson.
Breanna attends Tucson Hebrew Academy. She enjoys playing guitar and playing basketball for the Tucson Cats.
For her mitzvah project, she volunteered over the past year at Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging. She helped coordinate arts and crafts projects, led services, served lunch and helped residents organize their family pictures. She especially enjoys listening to stories and memories the residents share and plans to continue volunteering.
