“Upsherin” Day Program
A unique and very rich program for an unforgettable day at Meron and Safed – the “Upsherin” celebration for your son.
The program includes the following:
Three Jewish soul music players will greet you at Meron and will accompany the “Upsherin” ceremony with singing and dancing, in addition to leading the haircut ceremony together with you. Our musicians (violin or clarinet player) will make sure no one forgets this unique ceremony.
The Otzar HaSTam quality home catering will prepare a festive meal for you.
The age of three is considered as a special age in the Torah. Up to the age of three, the child is not ready for Torah studies and from the age of three, his father dedicates him to the Torah. This is what we learn from the Torah regarding the prohibition of foreskin (of trees):
“…three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten of. But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the G-d withal.”
The ceremony is usually held at Meron, at Rashbi's gravestone.
At Otzar HaSTam, we will be happy to help you put together a perfect event.
