Rose Engel practiced her Torah and haftorah portions with an eager diligence. She studied with the rabbi and prepared an essay. Her passion and excitement matched that of most of the synagogue's bat mitzvah candidates, but at 87, she is far from their peers. Engel is the most senior member of the 31 women who became b'not mitzvah on June 13 at Adat Ari El in Valley Village.
