Mazel Tov Sarah and The Pyzer Family!
Sarah Bailey Pyzer, the daughter of Laura and Jeremy Pyzer, and older sister to Rebecca Daisy Pyzer, will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah. Grandparents Lloyd and Linda Pyzer and Eugene Zelkwitz will join family and friends from the Las Vegas area, Utah and California in celebrating Sarah's accomplishments.
Sarah attends a local Charter School. She is in the 8th grade this year, moving to the High School campus of her school. She has participated in Girl Scouts for the past three years, is an avid YouTube video watcher, loves reading Sherlock Holmes stories, and talking with friends about the current Marvel series on Disney+. Her current favorite is Loki. She traveled to visit friends and family with her mom and little sister over summer break - and is currently helping to plan a trip to London in the summer of 2022. Sarah plans to attend UNLV and earn a degree in Interior Design and Architecture. After, she would like to open up her own business and be her own boss.
Sarah’s family loves to do fun, short trips, as often as possible. Prior to COVID, she made her second trip to the Biosphere in Tucson, Az. - and visited several caves in the vicinity. This past year, trips have been made to the beach and camping in the mountains to focus on social distancing.
Sarah has been busy with her Mitzvah project this summer. She is collecting money and much needed items for the Boulder City Animal Shelter. She has successfully collected $444 in cash, as well as 9 bottles of bleach, 37 rolls of paper towels, 2 bottles of dish soap, 4 bottles of laundry detergent, and 4 boxes of dryer sheets. Pet food, litter, litter box, cat tree and pet toys are among the other items that Sarah has collected at a table in front of the Credit Union. Sarah, accompanied by a close friend, will collect much needed goods and dollars at the Credit Union on Friday Aug 20 from 3:30 p.m. til closing. Contact mom, Laura Pyzer, for pickup of any donations at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a member of the 2020-2021 B'nei Mitzvah class, Sarah became a member of the David L. Simon Foundation's Junior Board. Together, with her peers, she helped select two projects to fund with money awarded to the class for a Tikkun Olam project of their choice. The group selected the "Amazon Conservation Team (ACT)" and "United Cerebral Palsy (UCP)" as their group projects. ACT is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with indigenous people of tropical South America in conserving the biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest, as well as the culture and land of its indigenous people. UCP provides housing, therapy, assistive technology training, early intervention programs, individual and family support, social and recreation programs, community living, state and local referrals, employment assistance and advocacy for patients and families affected by Cerebral Palsy. The class made a video to teach the congregation about their two projects.
Sarah loves her family, friends, and community. She wants to see and share all the world has to offer.
