Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah Dream Becomes a Reality!

MAZAL TOV! Last week, Daniel, a student at ALEH’s special education school in the Negev, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah with family and friends at the Western Wall. Daniel had been preparing for the occasion for months, learning small sections of his Bar Mitzvah portion every day. When the big day arrived, Daniel’s entourage, which included family, friends and ALEH teachers and volunteers, marched him through the Old City of Jerusalem to the Western Wall – singing, dancing and playing musical instruments all the way. Daniel’s parents smiled widely and swooned with pride as Daniel read his Bar Mitzvah portion. Thanks to his ALEH support system, Daniel was able to make his own dreams come true.
