The City of David National Park is close to the Western Wall, making it the perfect location for a Bar Mitzvah celebration with depth and content. The City of David National Park is ideal for family joys, values, meaning, and extraordinary experiences – all in one place. There’s an option for a festive procession accompanied by musicians and balloons to go from the Western Wall toward the City of David.
