Destination Mitzvah Celebrations offer the opportunity for families to combine the sacred ceremonies of the

Bar/Bat Mitzvah with a relaxed family travel experience.

Celebrating the traditions of a culture that is rich in heritage and custom is monumental occasion. 

The time and effort that an individual spends preparing for such an important day should also be

reflected in the celebration itself. 

The picturesque St Thomas Synagogue is the perfect location for your child’s milestone. 

Registered as a National Historic Landmark — the St Thomas Synagogue is the oldest in continuous

use under the American flag and the second-oldest in the Western Hemisphere,

complete with sand floors and facing mahogany pews

Valevents will assist you in planning a seamless experience for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah child and your entire group of family and friends. Whether you’re booking a cruise that includes St. Thomas, or spending a week at a Resort, we are on island to personally meet all your needs.

Your family Bar/Bat Mitzvah group can cruise to the Caribbean,

disembarking at St. Thomas for the day.

After the sacred ceremonies at the Synagogue,

enjoy a catered lunch in a nearby historic West Indian home

or at an island restaurant,

and be back aboard your cruise ship in time to set off for the next port!

Have more time on island – From single day event to multiple day planning let valevents take care of putting together a Destination Mitzvah celebration your family and friends will enjoy and remember for years to come.
