Max David Horowitz, son of Lauret and Ted Horowitz of Phoenix, will become a bar mitzvah on Oct. 28 at Merkaz Ha-Iyr.
Grandparents are Robert Schreier of San Saba, Texas, and the late Penny Schreier; and Martha and Mel Horowitz of Peoria.
For his mitzvah project, Max is making food basket centerpieces, which he donates to the Jewish Family & Children’s Service’s food pantry program, Just Three Things. He is starting a food-basket centerpiece-rental program for JFCS, so that his bar mitzvah project can continue to benefit the community in the future.

Max attends Stetson Hills Elementary School and his hobbies include cross country, soccer, baseball, solving Rubik’s cube and playing Xbox with
