    i think possibly we should encouraging Jews in he diaspora to celebrate the Judasism , I think that an Israeli american boy who has grown up inthe diaspora, to do a barmitzvah at the Kotel is an imperative if we want to ensure a connection for the future. There comes a time when no matter what ones political beliefs , That one should put aside differences for a more important issue. In this case ensuring the jewish identity and attachment to israel for future generations. By all means demonstrate when Ram emanuel is on official business boycott visits of obama if you think it will help , but hey when a family comes to celebrate there bar mitzvah allow that family to feel the joy that keeping mitzvot should provide. In short shame on the misguided Zealots who think that by destoying a 13 year olds right of passage as a jewish man is anything other than an act of cheap bullying.!
