Nina Smith, thirteen is particularly grateful for the opportunities that have come her way.

Reflecting upon her bat mitzvah last Nov at Berkeley’s Congregation Beth Israel, she stated “Here are all these people that love you and that care about you, enough to travel long distances to be with you.”

Nina, a student at Tehiyah Jewish Day School in El Cerrito, also knows that not everybody is so fortunate. So for her bat mitzvah, she sought donations — in lieu of gifts — to the Jewish Coalition for Literacy, which provides one-on-one tutoring for struggling young readers from low-income homes.

“I just hope that this donation has changed someone’s life,” Nina said.
