Odeya Lahav and her family celebrated her Bat Mitzvah with family and friends in Israel with ITC providing all that they needed. They started their weekend with a fabulous Bat Mitzvah in Jerusalem at the egalitarain section of the Western Wall (Robinson’s Arch) followed by a fabulous luncheon and party with tons of special details incorporated!
Following this exciting weekend they then toured the country together with friends and family from the top of the Golan to the southern tip of the country in Eilat!
