Shayne Windrum – Bar Mitzvah 18 February 2017

Hi, my name is Shayne Windrum. I am in Grade 7 at Cedarwood College. I enjoy studying and learning about Space and the planets that surround us. When I have finished my homework, I relax by playing Clash Royale. I have an older sister, Gemma, who helps me a lot. My mother, Maxine, is always around to guide me. I look forward to celebrating my Bar Mitzvah at Bet David, where I have been a member my whole life.

I have been inspired to help others. Having lived with cats my whole life, I am dedicating my Bar Mitzvah project to the care of cats that are unfortunate not to have a loving family like mine to look after them.
