The bar mitzvah of Theodore “Teddy” Robert Goldstein of Dunwoody was held Saturday, May 27, 2017, at Congregation B’nai Torah.

Teddy is the son of Ray Alyssa Rothman and has a brother, Sammy, almost 10, and a sister, Becca, 8. Teddy is the grandson of Stan and Harriet Dickman of Virginia Beach, Va. He is the son of Will Goldstein and has a half-brother, John.

For his bar mitzvah project, Teddy chose to work for Creating Connected Communities, which brings life-enhancing programs to underprivileged children by empowering teen volunteers to become engaged community leaders and offers b’nai mitzvah projects. Teddy chose to have a booth at CCC’s spring festival, where he helped children who were not as fortunate as he to plant flower seeds. His belief is that the underprivileged kids will grow and thrive like the flowers.
