Bar Mitzvah at the Western Wall

Photographing a Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel

It is not something I do quite often As the Bar Mitzvah usually takes place at the men side And as a woman photographer I am obliged to stay at the women side, behind the partition.

However, I do explain in our initial conversation that despite the fact I will stay at the women side I own the most advanced photography equipment including some great zoom lenses I can photograph the whole ceremony from the women's side And there is even an advantage in it My view point in broader I can capture the whole picture as well as the little details within.

In June 2023 I had the pleasure to accompany the Shmuel family who arrived to Israel for their simcha to celebrate Noah's Bar Mitzvah at the Western Wall.

I met them at the Dung Gate, from there we had a happy procession of drummers, a chuppa, shofars and lots of dancing and balloons.

When we arrived the the Western Wall, I found a great spot over the partition My view angle was perfect As you can see in the beautiful photos.

So if you are celebrating a Bar Mitzvah at the Western Wall Please don't hesitate to contact me I promise you will have great photos from your wonderful celebration Capturing all the magic moments, the joy and excitement of the special occasion.
