About Our Bar Mitzvah, Gabe Plotkin

Gabe Plotkin

Gabriel Plotkin has been a member of the Kol Ami community since moving to Salt Lake City from Chicago, IL in 2016. He is currently in the 7th grade at Evergreen Junior High. Since moving to Utah, Gabe has worked hard at maintaining his connections to his family back in Chicago, and is grateful to have his grandparents, aunts, and cousins cheering him on from afar!

Gabe is an avid reader and nearly always has a book in his hand. His favorite genre is fantasy and his favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter. He also enjoys video games, riding his bike, and attending summer camp at the JCC, where he hopes to become a counselor someday.

For his Bar Mitzvah service project, Gabe has been volunteering at Best Friends Animal Shelter, a perfect pairing of his deep love of animals and his parshat, Noach. Gabe requests that any donations in honor of his mitzvah project be made directly to the shelter, where they are most in need of any type of pet food.

Gabe wishes to thank his parents, David Asman, and Rabbi Spector for helping him prepare for his Bar Mitzvah. He would also like to extend a special thank you to Janna Zamir and Mazal Peterson, who were instrumental in teaching him the Hebrew language.
