We were honored to have invited you to support the celebration of 15 of our youngsters who reached their Bar Mitzvah milestone this year.
The ceremony took place in the new dining room at The Bet Shemesh Educational Center on Rosh Hodesh Iyar, 23.4.12.
Becoming Bar Mitzvah is often the most significant event in a teenage boy’s life. It marks the important boundary between childhood and adulthood and is generally a time for great joy as well as reflection. Sadly, many of the students at the Bet Shemesh Educational Center simply cannot afford to celebrate this special occasion because of their families’ financial hardship.This year, the Bet Shemesh Educational Center seeks to fulfill the dreams of its Bar Mitzvah boys.
The parents were over joyed at the opportunity we gave them with your kind donations. After completing an educational course about the significance of becoming Bar Mitzvah, each of the boys was given a set of teffilin, and a tallit, as well as a small gift (brand new watches) in honor of the momentous event. They also had the opportunity to celebrate their special day with their families and friends, they were all treated to a luxuriously catered meal and taken on an exciting field trip to the Kotel and old city for various tours, pizza and more.
