Talia Ruth Stein, daughter of Dr. Robyn Miller and Stephen Jacob Stein and sister of Maya Eve Stein, will become a bat mitzvah on June 5 via livestream by Washington Hebrew Congregation. A seventh grader at Westland Middle School in Bethesda, Talia is the granddaughter of Polly and Manny Miller and Mimi Stein, and the late Dr. Herbert Stein.
For her mitzvah project, Talia has chosen to help the organizations Generation Hope and Mary’s Center. Generation Hope helps teen mothers attend school, finish their education and have access to a better life. Mary’s Center gives a safe space to teenagers and provides comprehensive services to them, such as medical, educational and social services. Her project is to collect unused working computers and to donate them to help teenagers have personal freedom, access to academic materials, the ability to search for jobs, shop and learn many skills they will need in life.
