Jordan Whiting Bar Mitzvah – June 28
Jordan Whiting will be called to the Torah as a Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth El on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at 10 A.M. Jordan is the son of Marcy Herman and Tim Whiting, and brother to Brooke.
Jordan is a 7th grader at the Riverside STEM Academy where he plays the alto sax and serves on the Yearbook Committee. He enjoys going camping with his Boy Scout troop. Jordan really enjoys Star Wars, Legos, programming, and video games such as Minecraft.
His Mitzvah project has been to visit home bound congregants. He found it interesting to learn about the reasons some of the early Temple members came to California.
Jordan is looking forward to having his family from Massachusetts and Michigan celebrate with him as he reaches this milestone.
