      Ministerial Shavuot Greetings at Special Bar Mitzvah


      Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, deputy minister for Religious Affairs attended a special Bar Mitzvah ceremony for 36 children from disadvantaged families, conducted by the  ALM Association.

      "Soon we will celebrate the holiday of Shavuot, the Festival of the Giving of the Torah. Midrash says, when Moses ascended to Mount Sinai to receive the Torah, the angels came to God and asked, 'who guarantees that Israel will keep the Torah?' Moses said to the angels: 'The children received the Torah, and thanks to their commitment to study and observe Torah, the Torah of Israel will be preserved from generation to generation," said the Rabbi.
