Ramah Israel Institute

Bnei Mitzvah Family Israel Adventure

Celebrate this milestone with a fun and spiritually enriching family trip in the ruach (spirit) of Ramah. The trip is designed for families, including grandparents, with children celebrating their Bar or Bat Mitzvah in Israel, ages 11-13, from across North America.

This exciting trip focuses on family and connecting to circles of life: me, my family, my kehila (community), and my Judaism.

Doing such a trip with your nuclear family can be prohibitively expensive; with the Ramah Bnei Mitzvah trip, you join with other like-minded families and celebrate together. Along with our Rabbi/Educator, we will accompany the Bar/Bat Mitvah on this journey from long before you land in Israel, assisting from afar as they learn the verses they will read and words they will say. After the ceremony we will celebrate in a party together, with the opportunity for family and friends from Israel to join us as well.
