Bar Mitzvah Certificate
There are thousands of children in Israel each year who are unable to participate in and celebrate their Bar Mitzvah.
Every year, WIZO organises group Bar Mitzvah programmes for children whose families who are unable to afford a personal celebration.
The boys participating in the WIZO Bar Mitzvah programme are from disadvantaged families affected by poverty, family crisis, bereavement or are single parent families or immigrants from Russia or Ethiopia.
Without WIZO, these children would not be celebrating their Bar Mitzvah.
The WIZO Bar Mitzvah programme includes:
• Jewish educational classes
• Trip to Jerusalem and the Kotel (usually their first time)
• Participation in community volunteer work
• A festive family celebration
• Gifts of religious articles e.g. tefillin, tallit and siddur
