“Bar Mitzvah” literally means “son of the commandment.” “Bar” is “son” in Aramaic and” Mitzvah” is “commandment” in both Hebrew and Aramaic. “Bat” is daughter in Hebrew and Aramaic.
Under Jewish Law, children are not obligated to observe the commandments; although they are encouraged to do so as much as possible to learn the obligations they will have as adults. At the age of 13 (12 for girls), children become obligated to observe the commandments. The bar mitzvah ceremony formally marks the assumption of that obligation, along with the corresponding right to take part in leading religious services and to count in a minyan (the minimum number of people needed to perform certain parts of religious services).
Today, the trend in Israel is to combine a beautiful tour in Israel with a Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony at either the Western Wall or at Masada.
This kind of adventure will forever be remembered by the Bar/Bat Mitzvah boy or girl.
I offer an unforgettable adventure to the entire family that may include attractions like a desert safari and camel riding, snorkeling in the Red Sea, rafting on the Jordan River, and many more exciting experiences. In addition to this we can visit significant historical sites and places important to Jewish heritage.
