Bar and Bat Mitzvah Ceremony for Holocaust Survivors at the Western Wall

The Bar & Bat Mitzvah Celebration for Holocaust Survivors is the initiative of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. It is run with the cooperation of government minister Gila Gamliel, the Ministry for Social Equality and municipalities across the country. The Bar & Bat Mitzva Program brings together groups of senior citizens who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust at the time of their bar and bat mitzvahs. They now have the opportunity to celebrate at the Western Wall, the same right as every boy and girl of that age. At the emotional event, the men wrapped Tefillin around their arms and the women participated in a beautiful, festive prayer ceremony. After sharing some of their difficult stories experienced during the war years, they continued on to the prayer plaza. There they were accompanied by many celebrants including I.D.F. soldiers and volunteers who came specifically to participate in this unique event.
The Western Wall Heritage Foundation is proud and honored to host this special program.
