A Bar/Bat-Mitzvah is possibly the most important event for every Jewish boy or girl. It marks the beginning of full Jewish adulthood, celebrated in a festive event by the whole family. Reading the Torah in the synagogue and the celebrations that follow are almost equal to a wedding, and will be remembered dearly in the child’s heart for the rest of their life.
There are several ways to mark this special occasion, but the ultimate way to celebrate such a festive family event is a Bar-Mitzvah tour in Israel. Touring the land of the bible and experiencing the life and culture of the modern Jewish state is truly an unforgettable adventure, both for the Bar/Bat mitzvah child, and for their family.
A successful Bar-Mitzvah tour in Israel requires careful planning. Accommodations, activities, transportation, a ceremony and a celebratory meal. They all have to be weaved together into a carefully made itinerary.
Being a premium tour agency to Israel, we will be happy to set an e-meeting with you and discuss all the details of this special occasion. Like an event producer, together we will set for you a detailed plan, with all our recommendations and tidbits. All in all, these are some of the activities to consider:
A Rabbi – A Rabbi (or Rabba) experienced with Bar-Mitzvah events could enhance the event in different ways.
Minstrel – Nothing like a professional chanter and dance motivator leading the event and getting everyone excited!
Musical procession – You might consider a band of Jamba drummers and shofar blowers leading the event, and/or a klezmer band (guitar, trumpet and klarinet).
Balloon person – A colorful and exciting event of releasing blue and white helium balloons following a blessing of the child at the end of the ceremony will enhance the festivity of the event.
Photography and Video – Having invested so much in this family event, it would be a shame having only your phone’s camera recording it. We can reserve for you a top photographer and/or videographer that will produce high quality content to take home.
Celebratory Meal – Following the ceremony, a celebratory meal is the way to go!. Depending on the location, we will be happy to help you set catering or a fine restaurant for the event.
