Jessica, an eighth grader from Randolph-Macon Middle School, talked to the female Upper School cadets about Jewish customs, holidays, and traditions. Jessica, according to Jewish culture, just became a “woman” in seventh grade when she had her bat mitzvah. She explained to the girls during the monthly Residential Life activity about this experience of becoming an adult in her religion and what she believes in.
