Shay Cohen celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in grand Hebron- style surrounded by tons of family and friends. Rabbi Danny and Batsheva Cohen hosted more than 300 people in a full catered event at the plaza in front of Ma’arat HaMachpela.
The event included inspiring words of Torah and passion for Eretz Yisrael from the Rav of Kiryat Arba/Hebron, Rabbi Dov Lior. Amazing live music was provided by the Shlomo Katz Band, which had everyone on their feet and dancing for joy. Also in attendance were many friends from the surrounding hilltop communities in Yehudah and Shomron. They brought their unique style, spirit, energy, and passion that included moving, live musical performances from Binyomin Landau and Mordechai Yitzhar.
The Bar Mitzvah celebration became very unique as a result; a truly powerful community gathering. Rabbi Danny, Batsheva, and Shay thank everyone for attending. And much gratitude to those who attended from a distance in spirit with their generous gifts and good wishes.
Many former soldiers who served in Hebron and became close to the Cohen’s and Chabad of Hebron, came back to visit and join in the celebration. There were even friends of Danny’s with whom he served in the army 1992.
A special Yasher Koach to Rebbetzin Batsehva Cohen for putting together the incredible, hand-crafted Viennese dessert table.
