The Bar Mitzvah Ceremony
With so much meaning and spirituality, the Bar Mitzvah ceremony is the perfect time to celebrate with loved ones. This ceremony marks the Bar Mitzvah boy’s first steps into the world as a man. Families can opt to celebrate at the Kotel in Jerusalem, which represents one of the most important places of prayer in the Jewish world. The Kotel is a true source of inspiration and it is a powerful symbol of the fortitude and strength of the State of Israel. Within this holy place, the Bar Mitzvah boy and his family will experience a strong sense of holiness and unity and they will get the opportunity to add a new link in the eternal chain of generations who have shared in this magical milestone.
Israel offers something for everyone. No matter how big or small the Bar Mitzvah party is, a tour and activity can be arranged that allows each family member and friends to create unforgettable experiences. If you prefer to celebrate in a place that is rich in history, a celebration can be arranged at a private venue located close to the Kotel, in an ancient synagogue located on Masada, or even on Mt. Scopus, overlooking the Old City.
For others, adventure is the key and an event planner can create a celebration out in the desert in an exotic Bedouin tent, on the beach overlooking the infinite Mediterranean Sea, on a yacht in the Red Sea or even outside in a lush outdoor garden. Activities can then be arranged including swimming with the dolphins, learning Krav Maga, desert jeep tours followed by camel rides, treasure hunts, or even exploring a reconstructed biblical village.
