Celebrating a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in Jerusalem is so special. There are so many places you want to pack into the experience. Susan’s House is honored to find itself on the list of places more and more families are choosing to include in their simcha. Celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is not just about the party, it’s about becoming a responsible part of the Jewish people, and a focus on chesed, tikun olam, and tzedakkah have found their places in the celebration.
Some families choose to take the tour, and listen to the story of Susan’s House. They hear about how one person’s dream changed the lives of hundreds of teens. They come behind the scenes and watch the teens working in the workshop creating the beautiful pieces of art displayed in our giftshop. They have a chance to talk to some of the teens, and leave with a greater appreciation for what they have, and what they can achieve.
Other families want to do something “hands-on”. We offer a volunteering opportunity, where visitors can help by stringing beads for necklaces, or painting the backgrounds on some of our products. We also offer visitors the opportunity to create their own art, like stringing a necklace, painting a mezuza, or building and painting a wooden model.
We have also had the opportunity to host Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties at Susan’s House. It will truly be a night to remember.
So, let us know what you are looking for, we would be honored to help enhance your family’s simcha.
