The bar mitzvah ceremony of Alexander Phillip Levin of Sugar Hill was held Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017, at Congregation Beth Shalom.

Alex is the son of Glenn and Alyson Levin and has a brother, Brandon, 15. He is the grandson of Guy and Susan Rappaport of Suwanee and Joyce Levine of Selden, N.Y.

For his bar mitzvah project, Alex raised funds and donated part of his bar mitzvah money to Bert’s Big Adventure, a nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expense-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
