Hundreds of Strangers Attend Bat Mitzvah After Post Goes Viral
Photos of empty event hall prompt strangers to flock to Ashkelon to make a 12 year-old’s Bat Mitzvah special.
Eddie Yisraeli was simply trying to help out when he posted on Facebook on Monday, asking for strangers to attend a girl’s Bat Mitzvah in Ashkelon.
The event, which was arranged entirely by volunteers, was already in progress – but with very few attendees.
“Once again, friends, it’s time to step up – share quickly!!” he posted, alongside photos of a darling 12 year-old in a white dress and an empty events hall. “This is S., a 12-year-old Ashkelon girl from a family of little means. We set up a group of dear Jews who volunteered to make her a beautiful celebration for her Bat Mitzvah at the Shimshon Gardens events hall in Ashkelon.”
