It’s never too late.

With great excitement, and after some significant learning under the auspices of the Shahak Bar Mitzvah Preparatory Program, Ro’i Sahar decided to go up to the Torah and celebrate his bar mitzvah at 41.
As a child, Ro’i celebrated his bar mitzvah with the entire class on his kibbutz. Now, only months after his father passed away, he felt the need to go up to the Torah and celebrate with his family and friends. There is nowhere more suitable or that creates a stronger sense of belonging than the Western Wall.
Mazal tov!

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
