Shoshana Dalia Berger, daughter of Deborah Kornbluth Berger and Burman Berger, became a bat mitzvah on Sept. 12 at B’nai Israel Congregation. A seventh-grader at Tilden Middle School, Shoshana is the granddaughter of Dr. Ralph and Anita Kornbluth of Potomac, and Beatrice Berger and the late Bernard Berger of Potomac.
For her mitzvah project, Shoshana created Socializing for Suburban, in coordination with Suburban Hospital Foundation, to help provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline hospital workers. In addition to raising funds, she coordinated with school administrators to form Zoom calls with other students where together they spent five hours making and delivering cards for hospital staff. She raised more than $1,100.
