Simcha: Bat Mitzvah, Lily Stoumen

Lily Stoumen of Atlanta, the daughter of Jill and Larry Stoumen, celebrated becoming a bat mitzvah Saturday, Nov. 14, at Congregation Beth Shalom. Lily, a seventh-grader at the Epstein School, has two siblings, Nikki and Adam. She is the granddaughter of Sharon Goldhar and the late Joel Goldhar of Atlanta and Spencer Goldberg and the late Ellen Stoumen-Goldberg of Philadelphia.

For her mitzvah project, Lily organized a mother/daughter yoga event to raise money for Susan G. Komen and for the Zion Orphanage in Jerusalem in memory of her two late grandparents. Lily also participated in Am Yisrael Chai’s Daffodil Project, which had a planting at Beth Shalom on Nov. 8, and its Holocaust twinning program. Lily’s bat mitzvah ceremony honored Genia Goldhar, who was 12 when she was killed in the Holocaust.
