Solomon Levy Cover will become a bar mitzvah on Saturday morning, Sept. 14, at Congregation Shaarey Tikvah. Solomon is the son of Lora and Avidan Cover of Shaker Heights and the brother of Ruby. Solomon attends Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School. He loves traveling, playing baseball, soccer, basketball and football, reading, studying history and science, and hanging out with his friends and family. For his mitzvah project, Solomon is raising money for the New Life Home Trust, an organization based in Kenya that is dedicated to rescuing abandoned and vulnerable babies, caring for the children, and placing them into loving family homes. Solomon volunteered at New Life during the six months that he lived in Nairobi earlier this year, where he played with and cared for many of these needy children.
