The Welfare and Social Services Ministry will hold bar and bat mitzva celebrations for blind children and children with blind parents this week at the Ramat Gan Safari.

The event, which will take place on Wednesday during Jerusalem Day, is expected to include some 600 people. The ministry has organized for the visitors tours, a comedy show and a special celebratory lunch, which will each be fully adapted for blind persons.

Children celebrating their bar/bat mitzva and their families will also receive gifts in honor of the occasion.
