Isaac Clarke, son of Saundra and Kevin Clarke, will celebrate his Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, Oct. 14, at Beth El Synagogue.
Isaac formerly attended Friedel Jewish Academy. He is currently an 8th grade honor roll student taking several advanced classes at King Science Technology Magnet School in Omaha.

Isaac really enjoys camping, cooking out, archery, showing younger scouts “the ropes,” and the variety of activities that Boy Scouts offers. He even earned an aviation merit badge this summer by flying a small aircraft at camp.
