A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a time of connection, meaning and celebration.
A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a time when a young person takes his or her first steps on the path of adulthood, a time for developing a sense of responsibility, when a young person fully joins the Jewish community, links up with Jewish history, and begins to write his own chapter in that history. A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a time to celebrate together and to remember just how much we love our family and how grateful we are to have each other. A tour to Israel is the perfect way to celebrate this special event and the perfect place for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony. We will make sure your trip is fun, enjoyable, memorable, and meaningful for all who participate in it, but especially for the Bar-Mitzvah boy or Bat-Mitzvah girl, all in the unique style of your family.
Connect to the land of Israel and the Jewish past
The trip will include travel to the north, to the Galilee and Golan Heights, an area of unspoiled nature – streams, waterfalls, and orchards where you can eat fruit right off the trees. There’s nothing like being out in nature together to strengthen family bonds. Walk the alleyways of the old city of Safed, and be inspired by its atmosphere of Kabbalah, creativity and mystery.
Visit the Judean Desert and learn its secrets. Explore why the Israelites became a nation in the desert. We will visit sites of Jewish heroism: The Bar Kochba Caves, where our fathers and mothers struggled to preserve their unique culture and traditions, and Masada, where Jews chose to make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve their dignity. These sites will challenge us to think of how we can preserve our identity and uniqueness in the modern world.
Jerusalem: Heart of the World
And of course we could never forget about Jerusalem, the eternal center of the Jewish people. Visit the heart of the ancient city built by David. Walk the history of the city and crawl through underground water tunnels. Touch relics from Biblical times which help us unlock the secrets of the past, in order to gain understandings to help us face the future. And finally, the Western Wall, the most sacred Jewish site, symbol of Jewish longing and prayer. Visit the Western Wall Tunnels and unlock ancient mysteries. Learn why the Wall has taken on so much significance for the Jewish people.
There are many special places in Jerusalem and in Israel where you can choose to have the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony. We will help you choose the best place for you, and together with you and the Bar/Bat Mitzvah boy or girl, create a ceremony that will be deeply moving for you and your guests.
