BAT MITZVAH IN ISRAEL

If you’re planning a Bat Mitzvah in Israel, it may be useful to have some local support to help with logistics. There’s a lot to think about: finding an amazing location for the ceremony, connecting with a local rabbi, choosing an amazing photographer, organizing a celebratory meal, and more! Your Bat Mitzvah girl has dedicated so much time and energy into preparing for this momentous occasion, you and she will want the whole day to be absolutely perfect.

Planning a Bat Mitzvah in Israel

Your personal Tour Specialist can help you figure out the perfect spot for your daughter’s ceremony. Did you know that Bat and Bar Mitzvah ceremonies can be held just about anywhere in Israel – not just at the Kotel? While reading from the Torah at Robinson’s Arch (in the egalitarian section of the Western Wall plaza) is an amazingly meaningful experience for many, you may be interested in learning about some other options for a ceremony that’s truly customized to the needs and preferences of your family. We’ll take it all into consideration: are there family members who’ll want to be able to sit? Love nature? Looking for spectacular views? Hoping for air conditioning? We’ve got you covered.

Looking for Bat Mitzvah in Israel Ideas?

Traditional

Torah reading at Robinson’s Arch, followed by brunch in the Old City. Pros – it’s right in the Kotel plaza for those who’ve been dreaming of a ceremony at the Western Wall, and you can walk to brunch. Cons – there’s nowhere to sit, and there will likely be a bunch of other ceremonies happening at the same time, right near you. Celebratory activity idea: go rappelling off the walls of the Old City.

Jerusalem

Torah reading at Goldman Promenade, followed by brunch in Jerusalem. Pros – stunning views of the whole Jerusalem area, including the Old City, and you can set up chairs for your own private ceremony. Cons – the location is out of the city, so you’ll have to drive to brunch. Celebratory activity idea: have an ATV adventure and amazing BBQ feast in the Judean Hills.

Masada

Torah reading on top of Masada, followed by a celebratory lunch at a Dead Sea hotel. Pros – you get the rich Jewish history without the crowds of the Kotel, and there are places to sit for your guests. Cons – depending on the time of year, it could be very hot. Celebratory activity idea: stay for luxurious spa treatments at the Dead Sea.

Tzippori

Torah reading in the ancient synagogue at Tzippori, followed by a celebratory BBQ lunch and hummus workshop. Pros – off-the-beaten-path, while steeped in ancient Jewish history and culture, and there’s air conditioning! Cons – not close to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, so it’s harder to invite local relatives who might have a long drive. Celebratory activity idea: go kayaking down the Jordan River.
