About Bar and Bat Mitzvah

This is a unique program in which the association Yad LaYeled HaMeyuchad – “Lend a Hand to the Special Child” –conducts a moving celebration for children with special needs – including the ones with complex physical or mental conditions – with the participation of family and friends.

The Bar Mitzvah celebration includes Torah Aliyah at the Kotel (the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem) and, for boys with speech disabilities, creative solutions are provided. See on other page also Bar Mitzvah trip to Masada.


For the Bat Mitzvah girls festive parties with performances by artists and bands are held.

Priority is given to children whose parents, for various reasons, chose before not hold celebrations. Each such event is very exciting and emotional for the guests and especially for the families and brings endless joy to the Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrants.

To-date, the association provided dozens of celebrations and engages an experienced team that makes each celebration, according to the child’s condition, a unique experience.
