During the ceremony, he becomes a man, a rightful member of the Jewish society. It is vital to select the best place for the celebration in order to remember the occasion for the whole life.
The Kotel and its significance for the culture
The Kotel is also known as the Western Wall. It is an ancient place, which is situated in the Old City in the very heart of Jerusalem. The Wall we can see today is a part of a larger construction of the past – an ancient Jewish Temple. It survived after the destruction of the Temple. Thus, it possesses several meanings:
Year by year, thousands of Jews come from various parts of the world to visit this Wall and pray. The prayers might be written down or spoken. The papers with the prayers are usually placed inside the Wall. Besides, this place is usually a part of tourist sightseeing in Jerusalem.
There are 2 sections of the Kotel – the one is for the men, while the other is for the women. Many rituals are organized by the Western Wall. Bar Mitzvah is not an exception.
