The B'nai Mitzvah Remembrance Wall
In honor of his Bar Mitzvah, and as a way to link Diaspora teens with Israel and remember the lost children of the Holocaust, St. Louis, MO residents Max and his parents Judy and Bud Levin, decided to launch a new project with Jewish National Fund: The B’nai Mitzvah Remembrance Wall.
Though erected in honor of Max’s Bar Mitzvah, the wall allows other Bar and Bat Mitzvah-age children to link their names to a child who perished in the Holocaust and continue the circle of life. Located in Jerusalem’s American Independence Park, the stone wall, designed to look like a Torah scroll, has glass tiles embedded in it. For an $1,800 donation a tile will bear the name of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child, his/her hometown and date of Bar/Bat Mitzvah and the name and home country of a child who perished at the hand of the Nazis. A certificate will be sent to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child as well. Proceeds will go towards developing, maintaining and advancing JNF-KKL’s five Israel campsites, to be used by children for camping experiences. You will receive a B’nai Mitzvah Remembrance Wall certificate mounted on a beautiful beveled plaque. (please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery)
Plaque measures 11" (w) x 13" (h)
