Our Annual Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebration

Friday 4 November 2022

“After you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you into His eternal glory in Messiah, will Himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.”

1 Peter 5:10 (TLV)

Dear Friends,

The hostilities that have marked our country have broken many families and plagued them with loss. Shmuel is one such victim. When he was five years old, Shmuel’s family was attacked by terrorists and in one tragic moment, he lost his father.

Without their father, Shmuel’s family spiraled into sorrow and poverty. And Shmuel is not alone — hundreds of children throughout Israel carry the burden of similar trauma and the ensuing financial hardships.

When children such as Shmuel reach the age of their Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the families often do not have the means or mental strength to host a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration. That’s where we’ve found a way to help.

Every year, Vision for Israel organizes a Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebration for over 60 children who have been victims of terror. It is our honor to give these boys and girls a celebration to share with their families, who have suffered so much.

Shmuel and the other children will enjoy an elaborate meal, generous gifts, and a meaningful ceremony at the President of Israel’s official house.

We are thrilled to be able to offer such a joyous day, as we take them in the Old City of Jerusalem, show them the history, archeology, bringing a true meaning of who they are (past and present) and plant a hope for their own future.

It is a privilege and an honor that we all can be a blessing in their lives. Each Bar or Bat Mitzvah child will receive a gift package valued at $850, which will include an iPad, and other special gifts.

Thank you for being a part of the Vision for Israel community and contributing to this event. It truly feels like a victory against the darkness and evil.

We pray that you will continue to join us in our support for vital programs for young men like Shmuel, and we welcome your contributions.

May the Lord bless and keep you.

Shalom from your friends,

Barry, Batya, and the VFI Team

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Are you willing to bless Israel, make a difference in the lives of people, and partner with God's plan for restoration of the land of Israel?
