Max London, the son of Lori and Joel London of Dunwoody, will become a bar mitzvah on Saturday, May 7, at Congregation Beth Shalom.

Max’s grandparents are Arlene and Milton Jacobson of Atlanta and Bonnie and Jack London of Montgomery, Ala. He has a sister, Sarah London.

Max is a seventh-grader at the Davis Academy. For his mitzvah project, he registered a team of 13 runners and walkers to participate in the Daffodil Dash and raised more than $1,250 for Am Yisrael Chai, an organization that aims to plant 1.5 million daffodils in memory of the children who perished in the Holocaust and supports children threatened by genocide in Africa.
