Amigour, in conjunction with the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, held a Bar Mitzvah celebration today at the Western Wall for 20 senior citizens who reside in Amigour’s Residential Homes and who never had a Bar Mitzvah before because of the Holocaust.
Over 280 senior citizens participated in this heartwarming event- “With love from the Western Wall”.
Prior to the ceremony, the B’nei Mitzvah visited the Western Wall Tunnels and Chain of Event Center, then the IDF soldiers saluted them and there was a ceremony at the Western Wall that included the laying of tefillin and being called up to the Torah.
The ceremony was attended by members of Amigour’s management.
Amigour not only cares for the physical, social and emotional well-being of its residents-but also for their spiritual enhancement.
