Mazel tov! You have reached the age of Jewish adulthood, having become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, and are now considered ready to assume Jewish responsibilities. Family and friends will celebrate this milestone with you and the occasion will be marked with festivities, as it should be, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Each year at the Children's Home 10-15 boys and girls also celebrate their Bar/Bat mitzvah and are provided by the Home with every facet of this important day. These boys and girls, wait in great anticipation for this joyous occasion.
You can choose to share this occasion with one of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah children by sponsoring: training for reading the Torah portion and being called up to the Torah at the synagogue, all the tools needed to create personal projects and presentations (such as recording CD's, making a video film, producing photo albums, etc.), new clothes, a festive dinner for family and guests, together with the children and staff. In addition, the children's unit and staff have a full-day's field trip and outing, and the Home presents each child with a personal gift. You can also receive updates photos and accounts of all the Bar Mitzvah activities of the sponsored child throughout this important year.
