About our B'nai Mitzvah

Eli Bloch

Kai Gerton

Eli is a native Salt Laker who has attended The McGillis School since kindergarten and been fortunate enough to study Hebrew with Mazal Peterson from day one, starting in preschool at the JCC. When he is not in school, Eli is a passionate soccer player and also enjoys playing basketball and ultimate Frisbee. He has also adopted his father’s hometown (Cleveland) sports teams and closely follows all of them (as well as his own hometown teams at the University of Utah and the Utah Jazz). 

Eli is tenacious, outgoing, and empathetic. He is keenly aware of his place in the world and is always willing to volunteer when someone needs a helping hand. We are proud and confident that he will forever continue to better the lives of others through his actions, small and large. 

Though he is a fairly new student at RSRS, Eli remarked how he felt a sense of being welcome and accepted. We are grateful to his friends and teachers, as well as the Rabbi, Cantor, David Asman, and Mazal Peterson for helping to make this day a reality. Mazel Tov, Eli!
