Oliver Isaac Lucoff (Ollie), son of Erika and Phil Lucoff, will celebrate his Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, Aug. 31, at Beth El Synagogue.
Ollie attended Friedel Jewish Academy from Kindergarten through 5th grade, transferring to Grandview Middle School in 6th grade. He is currently an eighth grade honor roll student at Grandview Middle School.
His favorite activities include spending time outside with friends, woodworking, fishing, soccer, wrestling, summer camp and video games.
For his mitzvah project, Ollie volunteered at Heron Haven Nature Center and Fontanelle Forest because he has a passion for nature and wildlife. At Heron Haven, Ollie helped complete the building of a beehive for solitary bees, the only bees native to Nebraska. At both Fontanelle and Heron Haven, he assisted with general clean-up/maintenance. His plan is to continue to volunteer at both places in the future in order to help preserve and maintain these urban greenspaces.
He has a brother, Jake (15)
Grandparents are Laura and Bob Friedman of Boca Raton, FL and Dena and the late Mark Lucoff of Milwaukee, WI.
