The bat mitzvah of Noa Horwitz Zusman of Sandy Springs was held Sept. 7, 2019, at Congregation Or Hadash.
Noa is the daughter of Ula and Michael (MZ) Zusman, and has an older brother, Ziv, who is 14, and a younger brother, Lev, who is 11. Noa is the granddaughter of Merle and David Horwitz, of Atlanta, (formerly South Africa), and Leonie Zusman and Michael Zusman Sr. of Perth, Australia. She attends Midtown International School.
Noa is passionate about dance and has been dancing competitively since the age of 8. Aware of her privilege, she has chosen to teach dance classes to children at homeless shelters as a means of giving back.
Noa describes Camp Ramah Darom as her “happy place” and has also chosen to support and fundraise for JDC’s Camp Szarvas, which provides opportunities to experience and rekindle Jewish life and community in Europe.
