Shayna Dawn Valinsky, daughter of Nicole (Cohen) and Howard Valinsky and sister of Alex (Natalia), Andrew, Brad and Eric, will become a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, September 5th, at Congregation Beth Shalom. Shayna is the granddaughter of Mira and the late Sanford E. Cohen and Toby and the late Marvin Valinsky. Shayna will be in 8th grade at Community Day School. She enjoys playing basketball and hanging out with her friends. For Shayna’s mitzvah project, she will be selling personally designed Pura Vida bracelets and the proceeds will be going to the National Kidney Foundation in honor of her Nana, Mira. Shayna is also taking part of the amazing program Remembering the Children B’nei Mitzvah Project where she is able to remember as well as honor a child that may or may not have survived the Holocaust.
