After a small, family bat mitzvah ceremony, Faye Harrington (pictured, center) was joined by friends Gemma Huang and Margot Levy (left and right) for a celebratory sleepover. Donning matching loungewear that was gifted by Faye’s mother, Kim Harrington, the girls enjoyed an evening of pizza, swimming in the heated pool, and virtual games on Oculus. The next morning they were treated to breakfast with donuts that were shaped to spell out “Happy Bat Mitzvah, Faye.” The ceremony was held at Congregation Emanu El, and Faye was joined by parents Kim and Zac Harrington, sisters Hazel and Lila, and a small group of other family members. Faye gave a speech that compared the Covid-19 pandemic to the biblical plagues of Egypt, and she plans to donate a portion of her monetary gifts to Interfaith Ministries to help refugees in Houston.
