Bar/Bat Mitzvah for Children with Disabilities

Bar/Bat Mitzvah for Children with Disabilities- Masorti Movement

The Masorti Movement recognized an unmet need in Israel regarding education, training, and practice for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah children with disabilities and therefore established this unique program over 20 years ago.

The program provides education, training, and practice for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah for children with disabilities from families from various backgrounds - from ultra-Orthodox to secular.

Through this program, parents learn together with their children and are introduced to Jewish rituals. Recognizing the profound emotional impact that the program frequently has on parents, Masorti offers spiritual care support services for parents that include individual meetings at each family's home and group meetings.
