Reading the Torah at the Kotel (Western Wall) is without a doubt the crowning moment of any bar mitzvah. In fact, bar mitzvah boys and their families come from all over the world to hold their first Torah reading at the Kotel in Jerusalem.

At “Simcha Hall at the Kotel,” you’ll be able to enjoy a festive restaurant meal at a hall overlooking the Kotel while celebrating your son’s bar mitzvah.

And if you’re about to get married, hold your Shabbat chatan at the Kotel and enjoy Shabbat meals and reading the Torah with us. We’ll take care of everything – no worries necessary.

Simcha Hall invites you to hold your Torah reading celebration at the Kotel, and then walk one minute to an amazing meal with a view of Jerusalem’s Old City and the Western Wall.

In the hot summer days and winter rainy months, you can hold your Torah reading in our comfortable indoor hall, overlooking the Kotel plaza. We’ll be happy to provide you with a kosher Torah scroll and siddurim (prayer books) according to either Ashkenazic or Sefardic rites.

Who are we? Simcha Hall has been holding bar mitzvahs at the Kotel for 20 years. Our dedicated, experienced, and professional chef has created unbeatable culinary menus, and we offer an in-house event designer who will ensure your special moment looks perfect.

All you’ll need to do is enjoy celebrating your son’s bar mitzvah or the Shabbat before your wedding at the Kotel – just liked you’ve always dreamed.
