Jemma Elisheva Coren, daughter of Abigail Coren, will celebrate her Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, May 26, at Tifereth Israel Synagogue in Lincoln.
Jemma is a seventh-grade student and an avid reader and is fond of writing, music, and art. After her Bat Mitzvah celebration, Jemma will be touring Israel with a group from the Lincoln Jewish Community and attending Camp Ramah in the Rockies.
For her mitzvah project, Jemma has been raising funds for the Israel Guide Dog Center to help provide independence to visually-impaired individuals in Israel. She ran a BEST IN SHUL dog show to help her reach her goal. She chose her mitzvah project because she hopes to study ophthalmology one day to help individuals with their visual health needs.
Great-grandparents are Nancy and Charles Coren.
