Bar and Bat Mitzvah Celebration
Once a year, we hold a moving ceremony at the Western Wall for all of our little heroes who are becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The children celebrate throughout the entire day, together with the President of Israel, the Minister of Defense, the IDF Chief of Staff, friends, family, volunteers, and donors from all over the world.
Although a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is first and foremost a joyous occasion, for IDF orphans, the day's excitement is inevitably accompanied by sadness, because they do not have both parents 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 family's sacrifice. We will stand by them whenever and wherever they need us, and accompany them in their proudest moments.
