My name is Rebecca Schwartz and I am entering 7th grade at The Birch Wathen Lenox School in Manhattan. I am becoming a Bat Mitzvah on September 17th, 2016.
I chose AFMDA as my Bat Mitzvah project because both of my parents are doctors who work so hard every day to save lives. Out of respect to them I wanted to work for a cause that also saves lives daily. Magen David Adom exemplifies this goal and relates to my Bat Mitzvah parsha Ki Tzei which emphasizes the importance of helping others.
