The bar mitzvah of Ethan Hayden Wolkin of Sandy Springs was held March 9, 2019, at Ahavath Achim Synagogue. Ethan is the son of Brent and Amy Wolkin and has a brother, Shai, almost 10. Ethan is the grandson of Mark and Barbara Funk of Columbus, Ga., and Alan and Pepi Wolkin of Atlanta. Ethan is a student at the Atlanta Jewish Academy.
For his bar mitzvah project, Ethan chose to collect kitchenware and linens and donated those collected items to the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. Ethan collected these items over the period of a few weeks and by hosting a booth at the AJA’s Community Day of Service on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
