Twinning Program


You are about to celebrate a truly unforgettable day. You will remember your Bar or Bat Mitzvah as long as you live.

But think for a moment of the million and a half children who never celebrated a Bar or Bat Mitzvah because they perished in the Holocaust. They must never be forgotten.

You can remember one of those young people during your own most memorable occasion. Remembering the Children will help you commemorate one young Jewish child gone before his or her time.

The Holocaust Center will help you identify and learn about that unique person, and honor him or her as a part of your own Bar or Bat Mitzvah. You will be presented with a certificate remembering that child’s life as it joins yours, and as you join the continuum of Jewish life, past, present and future.

There is a $36 fee to participate in Remembering the Children. It is recommended that you contact the Center at least two months before your Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

You and your family will always remember this day, and that is how we will all remember the children.
