The Ministry of Welfare will hold bar and bat mitzvah 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 tours for blind children and their parents, a comedy show and a special celebratory lunch for the occasion, which will be entirely adapted to blind people. Children celebrating their bar/bat mitzvot will receive gifts for themselves and their families.
