RECAP: Career Israel at Taglit-Birthright’s ‘Bar-Mitzvah’ Mega Event 2013
It’s Birthright’s 13th year and you know what that means? Bar-Mitzvah party! What better way to escape the crazy rainstorms taking over Israel than joining some three-thousand young Jews from around the world at Taglit-Birthright’s “Bar-Mitzvah” Mega Event, which took place last night at Jerusalem’s International Convention Center, Binyanei Hauma.
Tess, Jordana, Aviva, and Sarah (our new Marketing Associate!) were all there to witness how excited participants were to get back to Israel. From bubbly Bat-Mitzvah party dancers to elegant face painters, Birthright certainly became a full-fledged member of the Jewish community in our book! Oh ya, and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was there! Yasher Koach, Birthright!
