A Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony in Israel is an opportunity for a one-of-a-kind experience for you family, full of memories and connection to your roots in Israel. Let’s try for a moment to imagine a route of such a trip in Israel.
On our trips in Israel, we will visit the center of the state, Tel Aviv. Here, in the big city of Tel Aviv, a variety of entertainment options to suit everyone from good restaurants, nightclubs, spectacular beaches to bustling shopping centers and more. Alongside the entertainment options, we can visit the Palmach Museum, Beit Hatfutsot, the place of state declaration and the old neighborhoods of Tel Aviv. In the southern part of the city, we will spend time on the Nahalat Binyamin pedestrian street, in the colorful Carmel market with its variety of fruits, souvenirs, smells and loud vendors making it a colorful market. In addition to the visit in Tel Aviv is the ancient city of Caesarea, capital of the Kingdom of Judah in the Roman period, with the palaces of Herod the ancient amphitheater, the old port and the ancient city.
Of course, a major landmark on your trip is the city of Jerusalem. Before arriving in Jerusalem, we will visit the ancient biblical Old City, Neot Kedumim where we can plant a tree in our name. We will continue to the one and only Jerusalem and we can celebrate Bar Mitzvah in the Old City with drums and trumpets and with much joy and excitement, as it should be I a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.
Of course, in Jerusalem, there are plenty of sites not to be missed, such as the Jewish Quarter and the famous Cardo in the center, the ruin synagogue, the Western Wall, the Western Wall tunnels, which will help us understand what ancient Jerusalem looked like and of course the variety of artists in the Jewish Quarter. Outside the walls of the old city, we can visit the picturesque neighborhoods of Mishkanot Sha’ananim and Yemin Moshe, the Israel Museum and the Shrine of the Book, and conclude with an emotional visit to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum. For those interested in completing the experience, we recommend staying for a family dinner in Jerusalem.
And what next? So in the east of the country are two famous world sites. Masada and the Dead Sea. Imagine excited stands, at the summit of the cliff in the fortress of King Herod, built 2000 years ago, commemorating the Bar Mitzvah ceremony with great excitement. With a great fanfare for the sounds of singing on the mountain with the Torah scroll, you can hold a special Bar Mitzvah ceremony that will be remembered forever. Standing on the mountain with your loved ones, you, your family and friends, while on the east is the Dead Sea scenery and around us the Judea desert, enjoy a once in a lifetime experience. At the end of the ceremony, we will descend from the mountain by cable car and visit ancient Qumran where the Qumran’s stolen scrolls were discovered. At the end, we can enjoy the Ein Gedi baths and of course have a good meal.
Of course, these are just some of the special sites you will experience during your visit to the country. You are welcome to visit Beer Sheva the city of Abraham, the Ramon crater and the ancient Nabatean city of Avdat
