Jeremy Matthew Silberglied (Yeremiah Menachem), son of Steve Silberglied and Gail Ravnitzky Silberglied, became a Bar Mitzvah at Bnai Israel Congregation on Aug. 29, 2020.
He is big brother to Jamie and Evan, and grandson of Karleen Heller, Jerry Ravnitzky, Marilyn Silberglied and Bob Silberglied (deceased). Jeremy is a 7th grader at Tilden Middle School.
For his mitzvah project, Jeremy is raising money for Sports Plus, an adaptive sports program. When he was younger, Jeremy participated in this program, which was instrumental in developing his athletic ability.
Jeremy now volunteers with the program, its first “graduate” to do so. Sports Plus (www.playsportsplus.org) is working to transition to an online format to continue serving kids with disabilities during the pandemic.
