Bar & Bat Mitzvah Zoom Preparations.
Join Us on An Inspiring Journey to Prepare You for One of The Most Significant Milestones of Your Life!

Who are we?

The Western Wall Heritage Foundation offers an educational tour that chronicles the historical journey of the Jewish people. This experience will deepen the bond that Jews around the world have for the Western Wall and Israel, their national homeland.

The Shahak program is named after Amnon Lipkin Shahak, a military officer and Israeli politician. Amnon devoted his life to reuniting the Jewish Nation regardless of the many traditions within Judaism. He believed that only through social responsibility and unity can we exist as a Jewish nation. We are proud to continue Amnon’s ideals by offering this program for all Jews who visit the Western Wall.


We invite you to take part in one of our popular Bar/Bat Mitzvahs at the Western Wall. Join as? on an exciting journey in order to prepare you for one of your first stepping stones life has to offer!

We go back to our ancient Jewish wisdom and values in order to teach you how to believe in yourself, trust what you believe and to overcome life’s hardships.
