This year, all of Har Sinai's 7th Grade B'nai Mitzvah students decided as a class to NOT give each other gifts but instead to donate that money to charity.
This picture was taken as some of the 7th Graders presented the largest portion as a gift to the Jewish Family and Children's Service of Greater Mercer County.

Rebecca McCormack, Bat Mitzvah June 15, 2013
One of the benefits of having Rebecca McCormack as a daughter is that she dances and sings around the house, which makes for a fairly merry environment.
Mom Melissa and Dad Paul have a budding dancer in their midst, as evidenced by the hours the Lawrence Middle School student has devoted to the art. On a recent recital night, her parents dropped Rebecca off at a series of dance competitions at 12:45 p.m. and she wasn't finished until they returned at 9:45 p.m.
On June 15, the Lawrenceville resident becomes a Bat Mitzvah, her good deed of collecting art supplies for HomeFront's Kids-to-Kids program completed. Her older brother, Matthew, also became a Bar Mitzvah at Har Sinai Temple.
"She's been interested in dance since preschool, but just in the past year she's really taken a bigger interest in it," says her mom. "She dances competitively outside of school in lyrical and musical theater and jazz styles."
In school, Rebecca served on the Yearbook Club and on the dance committee. As for hobbies, her mom says good-naturedly, "Drying her hair and frying it every night. Like a lot of 13 year old girls, she spends a lot of time in front of a mirror."
As for the future, Rebecca has a simple wish, says her mother.
"She wants to be famous," she says.
