Question: Our Bat Mitzvah ceremony is scheduled for next week, but the weather forecast predicts stormy weather. Will the ceremony be held in any case?

Answer: The short, 30-minute ceremony takes place outside on the Western Wall Plaza and in the women’s prayer section. In the event of rain, we will hold the ceremony in the women’s section under Wilson’s Arch located in the Western Wall Tunnels. The expanded, one hour ceremony in any case is held inside in one of the Western Wall Tunnels’ halls and therefore can take place in any weather.
