Community for July 26, 2018


Lily Claire Judelsohn will become a bat mitzvah on July 28 at Perlman Camp in Lake Como, Pa. She will lead the service and read from the Torah, parshat Vaetchanan. Lily chose to have her bat mitzvah at Perlman, surrounded by the entire camp, as this is her home and a very special place for her.

For her mitzvah project, Lily raised money for scholarships for Perlman so other Jewish kids can experience the camp and love it like she does.

In addition to her camp family, Lily will be surrounded by her parents, Robyn and David Judelsohn; her brother, Logan; and her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Lily is a seventh-grader at Cabin John Middle School. The Judelsohns are members of Shaare Torah in Gaithersburg. Photo provided.
