13-year-old critically injured in stabbing celebrates bar mitzvah

Naor Ben-Ezra, who was critically injured when two Palestinian teenagers stabbed him as he rode his bike in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood in October, celebrates his bar mitzvah at the Western Wall.

The celebration is attended by members of the medical team who treated him at the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital’s pediatric wing.
