Evan Samuel Gorodetzky will celebrate his bar mitzvah on Oct. 25 at B’nai Israel Congregation. Evan is the son of Mark and Tamara Gorodetzky, grandson of Sharyn and Arthur Fuchs of Rockville, and Barbara and Dr. Charles Gorodetzky of Kansas City, Mo. Evan is a seventh grader at the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School.
For his mitzvah project, he volunteers at Bikes for the World, an organization that donates used bikes to low-income people in developing countries. These donated bikes provide better transport for work, education and health care. Evan learned how to prepare bikes to be shipped in a shipping container, and he disassembled older bikes to donate their parts.
