Nate Teitelbaum becomes Bar Mitzvah
Shalom! My name is Nate Teitelbaum, and I am a 7th grader at The Brandeis School of San Francisco. On May 11, 2019, I have the honor of being called to the Torah to become a Bar Mitzvah!
At school, I really enjoy math, writing, and being with my friends. Outside, of school, I like to play sports and hang out with my friends. I have an adorable dog named Tucker, and two amazing, loving parents.
My bar mitzvah is Shabbat Kedoshim. Parshat Kedoshim is interesting because it has the “holiness code” and the golden rule. In my drash, I will be talking about the meaning of holiness, and how different people approach it today. I will also be talking about some of the weird rules in Kedoshim, and how they can be interpreted in today’s age.
Preparing for my Bar Mitzvah has been a challenging process, and I couldn’t have done it alone. I would like to thank my parents for always pushing me to get in some practice time, Rabbi Ain for helping me through the process of writing my Drash, and my wonderful tutor, Marilyn Heiss for being amazing and making learning fun. I would also like to thank all my wonderful friends for supporting me every single day, and for the many laughs we have shared together. I look forward to seeing all of you at my Bar Mitzvah!
