MDA Organizes Mass Bar-Bat Mitzvah for Holocaust Survivors


Yesterday (Tuesday), 87 senior citizens celebrated their bar and bat mitzvahs at the Western Wall (Kotel) Plaza in Jerusalem.

The event was organized by Magen David Adom’s (MDA) Holon branch, whose volunteers work with one of the city’s senior citizens day centers.

The MDA volunteers decided to celebrate the bar and bat mitzvahs of the center’s Holocaust survivors, who were unable to celebrate the momentous occasion as adolescents due to the war.
