Grace Theriot will be called to the Torah on Saturday, April 29th at 10:30am at Temple Beth El.
Grace is the daughter of Emily and Matthew Theriot and the older sister of Thomas and Lucy. She is the granddaughter of Castine and the late Tom Theriot of Kingwood, TX and Becky and Hollis Rankin of Edinburg, TX.
Grace is currently an honors student in the 7th grade at Bearden Middle School. She is a member of the Yearbook Staff and an officer in Student Council. She was recently inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Grace is an avid reader, loves music and art, and has a life-long passion for learning about history and cultures. Her strong sense of social justice is a perfect match for her work with the YWCA, where she serves on the Advocacy Days committee to raise awareness and help prevent domestic violence. And after more than five years of hard work and perseverance, Grace achieved the rank of first degree, level three black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
Grace began her Jewish education at the AJCC Preschool before graduating to Religious School at Temple Beth El. Grace’s early love of books and learning prompted her parents and grandparents to help start the Knoxville-area PJ Library. We truly appreciate everyone who has helped Grace prepare for this day, and are thrilled to celebrate this important milestone with you all.
Shabbat Service on Friday begins with "Appetizers for Body & Soul" (Pre-Neg) at 6:30pm, Kiddush Evening Minyan beginning at 7:00pm and "Sweets for Body & Soul" (Oneg) beginning at 8:00pm. Be sure to check the events calendar for our upcoming events.
