Question: We are planning a Bat Mitzvah at the Western Wall for our daughter and wanted to ask whether the event is appropriate for her 80-year-old grandmother who has difficulty walking?

Answer: It should be taken into consideration that the area of the Old City in general, and the Western Wall in particular, has many steps and uneven sidewalks. We will make every effort to use as few stairs as possible but be aware that this is often unavoidable. It is advised that you have someone available to assist your grandmother in these more difficult areas.
