Ethan Chanin, son of Jacqueline Eyl and Leonard Chanin, will become a bar mitzvah on Saturday at Adas Israel Congregation. He is a seventh-grader at Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. He began his Jewish education at Gan HaYeled, followed by the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital. He shares this simcha with his grandmothers, Leah Chanin and Phyllis Eyl, older brother, Jacob, and with other family and friends. Ethan enjoys art and swimming. Ethan’s mitzvah project involved working with the Hope for Henry Foundation to make a wish come true for a child with cancer and going through a bone marrow transplant.
