Jenna Elise Jacobson

Jenna Elise Jacobson, daughter of Barry and Sharon Jacobson of Orlando will be called to the Torah as a bat mitzvah on Dec. 7, 2013, at Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation.

Jenna is in the seventh grade at SunRidge Middle School in Winter Garden where she is an honor roll student.

Her interests include competitive swimming, soccer, and music. When's she's not doing homework, you will most likely find her listening to her favorite band, One Direction. 

Jenna has decided to share her bat mitzvah with two people she's never met who died well before their time.  First, Jenna chose to honor the memory of a young girl, Frida Zelikovics who died in the Shoah at Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944. The other person is a Jewish war veteran from New Jersey, Private Louis Shleifer who died at Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, and was 19 years old.

Jenna and her family recently moved back to Orlando from Plano, Texas.  She would like to thank her tutor, Cantor Ramsay, for his patience and guidance.  She'd also like to thank Rabbi Skolnik and Mr. Rubenstein in Orlando, along with the teachers from Levine Academy and Anshai Torah shul in Plano. 

Sharing in the family's simcha will be Jenna's brother, Mike; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends both local and from great distances who will travel here from all over the country to celebrate this milestone.
