Did you know that planning a Bar Mitzvah in Israel can be easier and much less expensive than having
it locally? Even easier for a Bat Mitzvah in Israel. More meaningful for sure. I guarantee it!
I can’t wait to tell you how...
My son Aarons' bar mitzvah at a conservative synagogue in Zichron Yaacov, Israel
Sure, you can take the traditional route and have a nice (yawn) ceremony at your local synagogue, followed by a
ridiculously expensive themed party with the best DJ in town for 200 or more of your closest friends and family.
I have been to my fair share and quite honestly have found them all to be nice, but not especially memorable.
Now, imagine something truly special and unforgettable like celebrating a Bar Mitzvah in Israel. After all, becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a life cycle event in Judaism that marks the transition of a young man or woman into Jewish adulthood. Essentially, it connects the Jewish child to his roots and provides an unbreakable link to what it means to be Jewish. This connection is what gives us our Jewish identity throughout our entire lifetime. So, what could be more fitting than to celebrate this once in a lifetime event by returning to the Jewish homeland?
My son had his Bar Mitzvah in Israel as well as my two daughters. For what many spend here in the States for the party, food, and music, you can take your entire family (the whole Mishpacha) to Israel to visit our ancient Jewish homeland and experience the most meaningful and unforgettable family vacation ever.
For many of you, I am sure the idea of planning such a trip is overwhelming to say the least. Don’t worry, I am going to help you get started.
