In a service fraught with meaning and with her family by her side, American Rebecca Singer celebrated her entrance into adulthood atop Israel’s historic Masada mountaintop. Planning a trip to celebrate their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, Singer’s family turned to Rabbi Shimon Elharar of Chabad-Lubavitch of the Dead Sea to organize a meaningful experience for the girl, who has Phelan McDermid Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes a plethora of developmental and behavioral disorders.
