Bat Mitzvah - Danielle Catherine Allen

 


Danielle Catherine Allen, the daughter of Cheryl Heller-Allen and Paul Allen, will be called to the Torah as a bat mitzvah on May 29, 2021, at Congregation of Reform Judaism.

Danielle is a 7th-grade student at Indian Trails Middle School, where she plays clarinet and is a part of the Indian Trails Symphonic Band. She is also an active Cadette member of Girl Scout Troop 1143 where she is working on her Silver Award. Her biggest passion is Irish dancing. She was scheduled to compete in 2020 at the World Irish Dancing Championships in Ireland, but it was cancelled due to COVID.

Danielle’s Mitzvah Project is very special to her and she has teamed up with Traveling Tutus Inc., a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (www.travelingtutus.org.) She is combining her love of dance and serving others to help provide dancewear to under-served children around the world. This past year has been hard for everyone. The only thing that kept her going was her love of Irish dancing. She wants to continue to offer the opportunity to those less fortunate to experience the joy of dancing.

Danielle would like to thank Rabbi Rick for watching her grow up, assisting her with her Jewish identity, and all the help he provided her before her family became members of Congregation Beth Am. Danielle also would like to give a special thank you to Cantor Bryce and Rabbi Engel for their guidance, tutoring, and preparing for her bat mitzvah.
