About Our Bat Mitzvah, Sophie Kolb

Sophie Kolb

Sophie is a seventh grade student at Clayton Middle School. She was born in the Bronx, New York, lived in Westchester, New York, and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah at 3 years old. She travels often to New York to visit family and enjoy all that the Manhattan culture has to offer. She lives with her parents, her 10 year-old brother, Adam, and her cats, Parker and Daisy. Her family have been members of Congregation Kol Ami for the past two years.

For her Tikkun Olam Bat Mitzvah Project, Sophie has volunteered at The Ronald McDonald House, a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families whose ill or injured children are receiving medical care at nearby hospitals. On Sundays, she spreads a little joy by making cupcakes for the guests and leading a crafts activity or holding story time for children, their siblings, and family members.

In her free time Sophie enjoys tumbling at the GTC. After some time off due to a broken elbow she has regained her strength and is back at the gym. She also loves spending time with friends and family. She loves to travel, and favorite trips include Aruba, Costa Rica, and a riverboat trip up the Rhine River.

Sophie would like to thank David Asman, Cantor Wendy Bat-Sarah, and Rabbi Samuel L. Spector, as well as her parents, for their help preparing for this day.
