Jordan Phillip Persellin, son of Kelly Persellin and Avi Persellin, will celebrate becoming a bar mitzvah on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017 at Congregation Anshei Israel.
He is the grandson of Donald and Sarah Persellin of Tucson, the late John Kiefer of Oakbrook, Ill. and the late Mary Strickler of Archbold, Ohio.
Jordan attends Esperero Middle School. He plays on the state soccer team for Tanque Verde Soccer Club.
For his mitzvah project, Jordan has been volunteering a few times a week at Handmaker Jewish Home for the Aging, spending time with the residents and calling out the numbers for bingo.
