MATTHEW Buchalter got into the swing of things when he was barmitzvah at Hale and District Hebrew Congregation.
The Altrincham Grammar School for Boys pupil loves playing golf and is a technical whiz, too.
Matthew, the son of Sharon and Ian Buchalter, of Hale Barns, has a 16-year-old sister, Charlotte.
He is a member of BBYO South Manchester and sits on the school's publications committee.
Also joining in the celebration was grandmother Patricia Baker, of Sale.
