Making a Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel
You’re driving to the Kotel--where do you park??
1. The Carta (paid) Parking Lot is located right outside Jaffa Gate.
How to get permission to drive your car into the Kotel Plaza:
If you have guests with limited mobility and would like to drive your car directly into the Kotel plaza, here’s what you do:
Call this number 02-626-9222 and give them the following information:
• the date of the event
Call the afternoon before the event to make sure they approved your request. Be aware that the police will check the underside of your car with a mirror as a safety precaution. The Kotel plaza itself is wheelchair accessible.
How to reserve a spot at the Kotel:
• Get to the kotel a little while before you have invited your guests to arrive.
An alternative to the Kotel at the big plaza, is the Kotel HaKatan, which is a continuation of the larger Kotel, located toward the Moslem quarter and much more private.
Do you want help with the arrangements and information on Kotel Tunnel Tours?
The Western Wall Heritage Foundation provides volunteer assistance with making a Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel. They can also help you set up a Kotel Tunnel Tour, and they provide information upon request on how your child can lead the Tunnel Tour. http://english.thekotel.org/content.asp?Id=110
