Ayden Yael Schure, daughter of Anat and Adam Schure of Phoenix, will become a bat mitzvah on Feb. 17 at Temple Kol Ami.

For her mitzvah project, Ayden used her passion for baking by selling home baked goods after religious school to raise funds for Bosom Buddies of Arizona, a nonprofit organization that provides support services to those affected by breast cancer. The Temple Kol Ami community helped Ayden raise more than $400.

She attends Sonoran Trails Elementary School and her hobbies include cooking, baking, piano and volleyball. In her spare time, you may find her whipping something up in the kitchen or hanging out with friends and family.
