Day 1: Welcome to Israel
Upon arrival at Ben Gurion International Airport a VIP representative will escort you through arrival formalities and see to it you are comfortably installed in your spacious van or vehicle for a ride to the golden city of Jerusalem. The first stop will be at a scenic overview of the Old City, before you enter the famed walls that have been surrounding the cherished and holy sites to three different religions for thousands of years. The young man or woman coming of age and the family will make the traditional visit to the most significant symbol of the Jewish faith . Whether for the first or the tenth time, a moment at the Western Wall is a moment of a lifetime for any young man or woman that will be a cherished discovery. Then, after check-in, you are free to dine in the hotel or an eatery nearby.
Day 2: Forests, Food and Future
After your Mediterranean breakfast, no matter which track you have chosen for your celebration, meet a specialist in your hotel conference room, to share the wonders of Jewish ritual and to learn about all the different ways that bar and bat mitzvahs are celebrated in the different Judaic sects, among them Sephardic, Ashkenazi, Ethiopian, Kabbalah and more. We will then set out for a unique discovery at Naot Kedumim, a unique forest and park about 25 minutes from Jerusalem. We recommend beginning with exploration of the amazing springs in the forest, followed by participating in the special workshop provided by the park’s chefs who invites everyone to roll up his/her sleeves and prepare a delicious meal together as a family. After the meal, plant a tree as a symbolic connection to the land of Israel and the Jewish heritage before heading back to Jerusalem. After having dinner on your own we recommend “walking the wall“, a stroll around the old city on the ancient ramparts.
Day 3: “Happening in the Holy Land”
Whether you prefer a traditional celebration with the ceremonies, prayers and spiritual leaders, or a celebration at seaside or a private performance of one of Israel’s leading popular or Klezmer bands, Lifetime Discovery programmers are here to recommend a number of routes that eventually lead to Jerusalem – or any other location the family chooses for the memorable ceremony and occasion.
Below we submit two suggestions, of a limitless roster of possibilities, in order to stimulate your fantasy mode; this event is meant to be custom-tailored according to your family’s taste and passions. Lifetime Discovery is here to produce the fantasy of your lifetime.
Here are just two samples of how the big day could play out. the staging of the the real show is Up2U..
Forest By Day, Sea by Night
After a visit with entire party to the Western Wall, set out for a delicious lunch in the Ein Karem, on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Descend from the hills towards the sea, by-passing Tel Aviv towards Dan Accadia in Herzeliya.
In dressing rooms provided especially for the entourage, change into swim suits for a dip in the sea before dressing up for a lovely buffet meal. A Klezmer band or chamber ensemble will accompany the meal on a private terrace in the hotel for folk-dancing and rhythm.
Rock the Mitzvah!
