B’nai Mitzvah

Kyra Elle Glassey

Kyra Elle Glassey, daughter of Lauren and Eric Glassey, will celebrate becoming a bat mitzvah on Saturday, May 27 at Temple Emanu-El.

She is the granddaughter of Judy Thomas of Tucson, Stan and Lori Thomas of Rockville, Md., and William Glassey of Tucson.

Kyra attends Marana Middle School, where she is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and has participated in cross-country running and track and field, assisted with service projects, and volunteered at her former elementary school.

She plays the flute, enjoys reading, baking and crafts, and swims on the Marana Marlins swim team.

For her mitzvah project, Kyra is working with the Scott Foundation to support children entering the Arizona foster system. She is collecting toys for Operation Toy Box and writing notes of kindness, inspiration and encouragement to be distributed with the toys.
