Planning a Bat Mitzvah in Jerusalem

It is time to start planning your daughter’s once-in-a-lifetime Bat Mitzvah tour in Israel. So, you’ve decided to base your trip out of Jerusalem, but where do you go from here? It’s important to consider the size and makeup of your group, including religious background and level of observance. Israel has options for everyone, but it’s useful to keep these things in mind while planning.

Size of the group counts!

Any plans for a tour of Israel are going to be affected by group size. Will it be an intimate tour for five or a large group tour for your whole extended family and all your friends? Something in between? Will the group always travel as one, or will some activities or day-trips include only some of your party? It’s helpful to know these things before you start making arrangements. This will help you take advantage of group rates at museums and historical sites and see whether you might qualify for private tours for you and your party.

Your party’s level of observance

Israel is a tourist’s dream come true! From Eilat in the south to Mount Hermon in the far north, from Tel Aviv to the Dead Sea, there are countless amazing adventures to choose from to make your Bat Mitzvah tour the stuff of legend! It’s easy to find something for everyone, but it’s important to keep in mind the level (or levels) of observance of your group members. For example, will everyone in your group feel comfortable on the beaches of Tel Aviv, where modest dress isn’t the norm, or in the ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods of Jerusalem, where it is? How do the members of your group prefer to experience the Sabbath? Knowing these things in advance will help you create a tour that’s sure to provide all your guests a fabulous Israel experience.

Planning your Bat Mitzvah reception in Jerusalem

When it comes to the reception in Jerusalem, all of the above issues will come into play. Size will dictate which venues make sense. The observance level of your guests will dictate the level of Kashrut, what type of music, and the nature of the events at the party. The good news is that most venues in Israel are ready to work with you to customize the reception to your group’s needs and preferences! The more information you can provide to venues about your group, the easier it will be to create the perfect Bat Mitzvah experience for you and all your guests.

The sky is the limit when it comes to planning your daughter’s Bat Mitzvah trip to Israel! Take the time to plan, and you will be sure to create beautiful memories for everyone involved!
