Can You Bring Joy to an Orphan on Their Special Day?
The Let’s Celebrate campaign is raising vital funds to ensure that orphans in Israel can appropriately celebrate their bar and bas mitzvah.
For many children who have lost a parent, what should be a memorable milestone becomes a time of stress and challenges.
Often there are limited financial resources, which makes any celebration impossible. After losing a father, who will help prepare a young teenage boy for his Bar Mitzvah? After losing a mother, who will organize the details of the Simcha? Who will ensure a young preteen girl is ready for this milestone?
Since 2007, the Simcha Connection has helped over 300 orphan children celebrate their Bar & Bat Mitzvahs. They have organized 25 Bar Mitzvah joint celebrations and 16 Bat Mitzvah celebrations.
This includes providing teachers to prepare and train each boy for their Bar Mitzvah, a suit, a pair of tefillin and a beautiful party. Every girl receives a beautiful pair of earrings, a silver candlestick and a voucher for a new dress for their Bat Mitzvah.
