There are a number of programs from which to choose and each family can plan a program according to their needs:
Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program: Dealing with Identity and Responsibility
A special family oriented program designed for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

The program puts emphasis on stories of coming of age during the Holocaust, including the bar mitzvah ceremony in ghettos and hiding places, as well as how young adults dealt with identity and family responsibility. Processing of the program is through an art-based workshop. In addition to the guided tour of Yad Layeled, a ceremony in the museum's synagogue can be added, as well as a catered meal.
