One of the toughest issues when making a Bar Mitzvah in Israel is travel.

All the more so, finding a price that you can afford.

Once everybody has the flights booked now it’s time to find the perfect hall.


Once you’ve landed, it’s time to put your bags down and go out and explore all that the holy land has to offer.

Finding the perfect hotel or apartment close enough to the Kotel, where you’re Simcha will be taking place is key to enjoyment.

We’ve solved that problem as well. Gosimcha Travel can also be a big source to help find the best rates on hotels for the entire family.

The Hall

When making a bar mitzvah, most people like to do the event at the Kotel.  It’s a wonderful experience.  They give you an aliyah, dance with the Torah and make the whole event very memorable.

Now, after all is said and done it’s time for the Seudah. While their are many fine dining establishments near and around the old city, many opt for a nice venue to host.

One in particular that happens to be right above the Kotel Plaza is ” The Simcha Hall

This venue offers an amazing view of the entire western wall plaza. The also offer a full in house catering menu of delicious and rich Israeli dairy menus.  This coupled with the proximity to the Kotel, makes this hall a great place to continue the experience.


Now that we’ve made it to Israel, we’ve found the hall, it”s time to make this memory last forever ( at least until the wedding)

Finding the right photographer to capture the big day can be difficult. With the language barrier and culture barrier, using an Israeli photographer might not be the most ideal.

Having a photographer who understands your vision, culture and event can make all the difference in the world.

One photographer that comes highly recommended to those coming abroad is Eugene Weisberg Photography   

Eugene has been working with Anglo clients from overseas for many years,. His expertise is Bar Mitzvahs at the Kotel and he can capture your special moment perfectly.
