Bar and Bat Mitzvah Celebration
Once a year, we hold a moving celebration at the Western Wall for all of our little heroes who are becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah that year. The children celebrate throughout an entire day, together with the President of Israel, Minister of Defense, Chief of Staff, friends, family and supporters from all over the world.
Although a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is foremost a joyous occasion, for IDF orphans, the excitement of the day is inevitably accompanied by a pervasive pain, because both parents aren’t there to celebrate this milestone with them. We strive to make this symbolic coming-of-age in a child's life special and meaningful nevertheless, by organizing a truly unforgettable day to show them that we will never forget them or their families sacrifice. We will stand by them whenever and wherever they need us, especially in their proudest moments.
