Dylan and Addison Merrill became B’not mitzvah on Sept. 10, 2022, at Temple Emanu-El in Dunwoody, Ga. Their parents Kerri and Eric Merrill are extremely proud. Grandparents Nina and Artie Bernstein and Sandy and Ed Merrill shared in Dylan and Addison’s accomplishment with pride, as well.
Dylan and Addison just started seventh grade at Dickerson Middle School. They love school and are both avid readers. They both play tennis and volleyball. These amazing young ladies also own their own bakery, which is very successful, called Twin Made Bakery.
Dylan and Addison are both very philanthropic. Since a young age they have been donating birthday money and baked goods to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Make-A-Wish Georgia. For their mitzvah project they helped stock the wish closet for Make-A-Wish so that kids and families could receive fun enhancements for their wishes.
Since tennis is a huge part of their lives and they love baking and traveling (particularly to Paris) they decided their celebration theme after the service would be Dylan and Addison’s French Open. Hard Hebrew work, perpetual party planning and the presence of (almost) all their treasured friends and family made their B’not mitzvah service and celebration perfect.
Dylan and Addison are thankful for the Rabbis, the tutors, staff, friends, and family who helped them pull off and celebrate their big day.
