Jacob Asher Gimbel, son of Candice and Mark Gimbel of Paradise Valley, will become a bar mitzvah on Sept. 16, 2017, at Congregation Beth Tefillah.

Grandparents are Renee and Irving Levine of Miami, Florida; Penny Gimbel of Scottsdale; Joe and Marilyn Gimbel of Paradise Valley; and great-grandmother Sylvia Gimbel of Phoenix by way of Baltimore.

Jacob was fortunate to visit Emunah Sarah Herzog Children’s Center in Afula, Israel, this summer, and he is raising funds for them. (To contribute, play fantasy football for a good cause or just make a donation at rootfunding.com/campaigns/jacob-bar-mitzvah-emunah-afula.)

Jacob attends Sunrise DLC Middle School and his hobbies include football, chess, video games, basketball, singing and collecting. Jacob also enjoys USY and B’nai B’rith youth groups.
