A Bat Mitzvah is a once-in-a-lifetime event – a rite of passage in Judaism from childhood to adulthood celebrated when a girl turns 12 – it includes a ceremony in Synagogue followed by a large celebration, attended by family and friends. However, during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Israeli government imposed strict lockdown laws meaning Bat-Mitzvah’s were all but cancelled.

The Campaign

Feminine hygiene brand ‘Always’ stepped up to help and created the world’s first-ever virtual Bat Mitzvah. It took place on April 22nd whereby any girl that turned 12 between March 1st – May 31st could join in via Facebook Live.

The Bat Mitzvah girls were even congratulated by the president of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, and were treated to live performances from Israel’s top artists.

We promoted our event across various platforms, and it was even covered in the evening news of the country’s main TV channel


Always’ virtual Bat Mitzvah became the world’s largest Bat Mitzvah ever.
