Beis Moshiach
  • When an Upshernish Turns Into a Bar Mitzvah

    When Rabbi Motti and Zlata Levin, Chabad Shluchim in Caen, the capital of Normandy, France, celebrated the Upshernish of  their son Chaim Menachem, they had no idea it would lead to the spontaneous bar mitzvah of an 82 year old Jew • Full Story, Photos, Video

    Rabbi Motti and Zlata Levin, Chabad Shluchim in Caen, the capital of Normandy, France, celebrated the Upshernish of  their son Chaim Menachem, who is named after his late great grandfather Rabbi Chaim Menachem Teichtel a’’h of Jerusalem.

    History has come full circle:

    The grandfather, Rabbi C.M Teichtel had survived World War II in France, and today his grandchildren, the family of the Shliach Rabbi Lewin and more shluchim families, brothers of Rabbi Lewin, in this same desolate area – Normandy – where they lift up spirits and bring Yidishkeit back alive.

    At the event, a video was shown, explaining the custom of the haircut at the age of three, and the connection to his roots.

    The coasts of Normandy are known as the place where the allied armies invaded, making it the turning point in the eradication of the Nazis in World War II

    The video shows children on a special journey tracing the Normandy landings, in the same Jeep army vehicles the Allied used in the invasion. They then continue the journey exploring authentic German bunkers, and assist there at the writing of a special Sefer Torah.

    Rabbi Motti and Zlata organize these journeys for children and families a few times a year. Hundreds of groups of tourists young and old are very moved by this tours.

    Following the video and the exciting ceremony, one of the guests, an 82-year-old Jew, stood up and put on tefillin for the very first time!
