An exciting Torah conversion ceremony at the Western Wall was the beginning of a joyful and meaningful day for the Sassover family, who celebrated the Bar Mitzvah of their eldest son, Guy.

After the ceremony, the family and guests went down to the City of David National Park, in an impressive procession accompanied by musicians full of energy and joy. The guests and family enjoyed a fascinating tour with City of David guides, a magnificent meal and generous hospitality.

Gil and Roni Sassover, parents of the bar mitzvah groom, say:

“Dear Moshe,

We want to thank you for the lovely event we had at the City of David, thanks to you.

Without exception, all of the guests were moved and enjoyed the hospitality, the tour with the fascinating guides, Gabriel’s food and all aspects of the service and the general atmosphere at the site and specifically at our event. The employees were all kind, hard- working, pleasant and enchanting.

We would like to specifically mention the lovely Tali, the sales manager, who communicated with us all throughout the process and made sure everything was perfectly coordinated, all the details were closed before the event and everything was to our liking. Everything was done pleasantly, politely, professionally and seriously.

Thank you as well to Gilad the champion, the director of operations, who made sure everything was executed perfectly at the event, and that any questions or requests were properly answered and perfectly dealt with. From the smallest details, to helping with our car during the most stressful moments, handling our videos and slideshows – with the professional and fast technical help of Miriam and Noam who stepped in to help – and Gilad who was there to help with anything we needed at the right time and place.

Thank you as well to Miro and the musicians for the groovy and graceful push in leading the procession, with lots of energy and a big smile, and of course to Shahar who was in touch with us at the beginning of the process.

Thanks to you and the whole staff, for everything. We had fun, and were so moved and happy to celebrate our eldest son’s Bar Mitzvah at the City of David with the professional and magical staff.

I’m sure David is proud watching over the team that is looking after his city.

We look forward to seeing you on happy occasions.

Roni and Gil Sassover (and our son Guy, the guest of honor, who supports every word written above)”.
