36 Under 36: Noah Ostheimer
Noah Ostheimer, 11, of Clarkston is a sixth-grader at Sashabaw Middle School who started a nonprofit at age 9 called Angels and Dreamers (with the help of Temple Beth El’s Rabbi Daniel Syme) to help young Jewish children who wanted to do mitzvahs in the community. Because of him, a child who wanted to feed the hungry teamed up with a local Jewish chef to bake muffins for Mitzvah Meals at Temple Beth El. Another child wanted to read to sick children in the hospital, and he and Rabbi Syme found a local Jewish pediatrician who helped her make it happen. Noah is an inspiration to other children and he is working to do “small things with great love.” Noah has put tikkun olam into action. Just wait and see what he does when he is all grown up.
