This Thursday, another peak day was held for the Bar Mitzvah program for the children of Ofakim.
The boys studied for their Bar Mitzvah with the help of the young men who prepared them (putting Tefilin on and reading the Torah).
Every year we hold a peak day in Jerusalem where the boys and their parents go up to the Western Wall to put on Tefillin and go up to the Torah,
accompanied by a circle of drummers and klezmers dancing with the boys.
They then went to receive the blessing of the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, Rabbi Stern.
And the Bar Mitzvah party at a Jerusalem restaurant and a tour of the Knesset.
