Bar Bat Mitzvah in Israel - Taking a Group Tour

For families who don't live in Israel, arranging a bar bat mitzvah in the Holy Land is relatively easy to arrange - whether individually, or by participating in a group tour where all the planning is done for you. The Israel Ministry of Tourism offers a list of service suppliers at 1-888-77-ISRAEL.

More and more Americans considering a bar bat mitzvah in Israel leave the planning to the professionals. Many American tour operators, Jewish organizations, Federations, synagogues and specialty travel sponsors arrange group tours for families celebrating bar bat mitzvahs.

The obvious benefit of these trips for many families is the relief from the work and pressure of planning. Even more important, yet perhaps less obvious however, is that the bar bat mitzvah tweens make friends with the other children with whom they're sharing the identical event. It creates a special bond, reduces nervousness, and transforms what for some children is an ordeal, into a magical vacation. It can also be vacation for the entire family, at the same time as it is a remarkable spiritual experience.

Tours are arranged during school vacations and, invariably, include special discounts, or even a free tour, for the bar bat mitzvah celebrant.
