Mazel Tov Ben & Livia!

September 9, 2019

Livia and Ben Smollen are eighth graders at Friends Select School and Aim Academy, respectively. They are excited to welcome and celebrate with friends and family traveling from Boston, California, Chicago, Minneapolis and Texas — but most especially their grandparents Mindy and Len Smollen, and Harvey and Marge Kaplan. When not preparing for their Bnai Mitzvah, you can find Ben on a basketball court somewhere and Livia practicing ballet. They, along with their older brother, Jacob, have been long-time volunteers with the Jewish Relief Agency, delivering food to elderly residents at Casa Farnese Apartments every month.
