Elana Beth Goldberg, daughter of Lisa and Ben Goldberg, will celebrate becoming a bat mitzvah on Saturday, Jan. 16, at Congregation Or Chadash.
She is the granddaughter of Mimi and Jerry Sisk of Palos Verdes, Calif., and Karen and Bill Goldberg of Tucson.
Elana attends Tucson Hebrew Academy and is a member of the Tucson Jewish Youth Choir, THA student government and THA’s Math Counts team. She enjoys reading, art, and playing with her pet fancy rats.
For her mitzvah project, Elana is teaching others to use recyclable materials to make art and useful household items, to keep waste out of the landfills.
