One of the goals of "The meeting place" is to attract people to the Temple Mount, to awaken in Jews a connection with this site, which is at the heart of the Jewish people. It has become a tradition for many people on the day of Bar-Mitzvah celebration to go to the Kotel-(Wailing Wall). Why is this place so attractive? Basically, its’ holiness consists of its’ proximity to the “Holiest of Holies” in the Temple, which at one time was allowed by the Turks to be visited by the Jews. But its sanctity is 1floor above!
We offer the Bar-Mitzvah boy and his whole family to go to the Temple Mount in strict adherence to the Jewish law and to get acquainted with the history of it; to explore archaeological sites associated with it and to read the literature that describes this place. From our positive experience of climbing the Temple Mount with children and young people, we can say that the ascent has a very strong influence. At a time when our children are forming their own worldview, we feel it is very important to give them the opportunity to experience the feelings of the Jew who is going up to the main shrine of his people. So far the ascent has been taken by the first Barmizva boy (pictured).
Over the past two months similar ascents have been done by dozens of people.
