Levi Simon Turell will become a bar mitzvah Saturday morning, Sept. 14, at Jewish Family Experience. Levi is the son of Marni and Jeffrey Turell of Beachwood and the brother of Tali. He is the grandson of Betsy Feuerstein of Lyndhurst and Marsha Turell of Houston. Levi attends Beachwood Middle School. For his mitzvah project, Levi formed an LLC called Shared Soles and is collecting running shoes to send to the children of Gondar, Ethiopia. He traveled in 2013 to do a volunteer medical mission with Jewish Healthcare International and during that trip, Levi witnessed many children who did not have any shoes and he decided to collect shoes to send to them. Levi also is publishing his picture book about his trip to raise money to cover the shipping costs of sending the shoes to Africa.
